About the Lecture : One of the reasons why Switzerland is an arbitration-friendly location resides in the extremely strict conditions by which an international arbitral award can be set aside by a state court. The lecture will examine a few recent decisions of the Swiss Federal Supreme Court and discuss how they may impact on the practice of international arbitration generally.
