The Dutch Arbitration Association organized its fifth annual conference on Thursday 14 September 2017. This year we focused on the latest developments in the areas of advocacy and evidence.

Leaders in the field of international arbitration shared their views on and provide practical insights. They covered topics such as effective oral advocacy, (cross-) examination of witnesses and experts and preparation and presentation of written testimony and expert evidence. The conference took place in an interactive setting and provided an excellent environment for participants to tap into the experience of seasoned practitioners from various jurisdictions.
