IBA Revises Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration

    View Authors December 2010
    The International Bar Association has revised its Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration, replacing the 1999 version. These rules, which can apply to both commercial and investment treaty arbitrations, provide mechanisms for gathering and presenting evidence in international arbitral proceedings. The revised rules introduce changes intended to reflect current practices and challenges in international arbitration (including e-disclosure and privilege) and will shape proceedings for years to come.
