We are all part of the Task Force on the Young ICCA project regarding the Young ICCA Guide on Arbitral Secretaries.
A debate had developed about the proper role for the use of arbitral secretaries at the occasion of the ICCA Congress in Singapore 2012, and Young ICCA, through the formation of the Young ICCA Task Force on the Appointment and Use of Arbitral Secretaries (the “Task Force”), has come to the forefront of the discussion in creating the Young ICCA Guide on Arbitral Secretaries, the first publication to lay out best practices for the appointment and use of arbitral secretaries. The purpose of the Guide is to better represent the international arbitration community’s views on arbitral secretaries and how arbitral secretaries can best be utilized by arbitral tribunals in a more transparent and efficient manner. The Guide on Arbitral Secretaries is the first in a new series of ICCA publications, the ICCA Reports, that will be launched at the 2014 ICCA Congress in Miami this April.
