The Limits of Party Autonomy in Institutional Arbitration

On 19 September 2018, CRCICA hosted a seminar on “The Limits of Party Autonomy in Institutional Arbitration”. The speaker was Prof. Andrea Carlevaris, Partner at Bonelli Erede, Former Secretary General of the ICC International Court of Arbitration and Director of the ICC Dispute Resolution Services (2012–2017). The speech illustrated the “inner” and the “outer” limits to party autonomy in institutional arbitration. The notion of outer limits refers to the potential conflict between institutional rules, on the one hand, and public policy and overriding mandatory rules of law, on the other hand while the notion of inner limits to party autonomy refers to incompatibility between institutional rules and the parties' specific stipulations. The seminar was concluded by interesting Q&A session and was attended by representatives of law firms, State Lawsuit Authority and Court of Cassation of Egypt as well as representatives of the construction and engineering industry and a number of universities.
