The Role of the French Cour de Cassation in Arbitration

On 15 November 2015, Dominique HASCHER, Judge at the French Cour de Cassation, Adjunct Professor of Law (University Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne), Member of ICCA Governing Board and former General Counsel and Deputy Secretary-General of the ICC, delivered an extremely interesting lecture entitled “The Role of the French Cour de Cassation in Arbitration”.

The lecture highlighted the salient principles adopted by the French Cour de Cassation with respect to arbitration including without limitation the autonomy of the arbitration agreement, the prima facie validity of international arbitration agreements, the nature of foreign arbitral awards as decisions of international justice and the scope of international public policy.

Attended by a variety of professionals, and moderated by Judge Dr. Borhan Amrallah (former President of the Cairo Court of Appeal) and Judge Nabil Omran (Vice-President of the Egyptian Court of Cassation), the lecture was very well received and led to a very interesting debate.
