CRCICA was represented by Dr. Mohamed Hafez, Counsel and Legal Advisor to the Director of CRCICA, at SIAC Middle East Academy Course titled “Time and Cost Savers at SIAC: Emergency Arbitration, Expedited Procedure and Early Dismissal” (Virtual Edition) which took place on 7 and 8 April 2021.
The format of the course comprised panel discussions, workshops and mock hearings, focusing on the Emergency Arbitration (EA), Expedited Procedure (EP) and Early Dismissal (ED) mechanisms under the SIAC Rules 2016. The topics were examined from the perspectives of arbitration practitioners, the Tribunal and the SIAC Secretariat. Over the course of an intensive two-day programme, participants were tested and got to refine their skills on the Emergency Arbitration, Expedited Procedure and Early Dismissal mechanisms under the SIAC Arbitration Rules 2016.

The teaching faculty was chaired by Mr Francis Xavier, SC, Regional Head, Dispute Resolution, Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP, and includes members of the SIAC Court of Arbitration, other leading international arbitration practitioners and arbitrators, as well as members of the SIAC Secretariat.
