The Guide to Advocacy is a practical book for specialists and would-be specialists on how to be persuasive during international arbitration, featuring unique insight from well-known arbitrators on advocacy.
The Guide is a useful tool for junior lawyers who wish to develop their advocacy skills, as well as a manual for civil trained lawyers who would like to feel more at ease with cross-examination.
Woven throughout are gems from big name arbitrators – tips, complaints, musings and reminiscences – providing a new, 360-degree view of written and oral submissions.
New for the Second Edition:
Building on the first edition, the second edition contains several new chapters and a fresh tranche of arbitrator contributions.
The object remains the same, however, to provide guidance on persuading an arbitrator to rule in your favour. While the first edition covers the basics of doing just that, through chapters on, inter alia, written submissions, cross-examination, opening submissions and closing arguments, this second edition delves deeper by exploring ‘Cultural Considerations in Advocacy’. These chapters contain observations of help when some of the players in the arbitration – be they arbitrators, opponents or others – hale from Asia, Latin America, United States or the UK.Published October 2017
