Baker & McKenzie will be “hosting” the ICDR Y&I online debate on virtual hearings and cybersecurity, on Wednesday, July 24 at 11:00 am ET (5:00 pm CET). The debate teams will square-off on the following topics:

  1. Virtual hearings should remain the exception rather than the norm.
  2. Arbitral institutions must do more to address cyber-security risks in international arbitration.

The debate will be in the style of the very lively Coffeehouse Debate held every year in Vienna during the Vis Moot. Francisco Franco from Baker McKenzie’s Mexico City office will represent the opposition team.
