LAW 430 International Commercial Arbitration Law Student Symposium

January 7, 2021

In International arbitration law, in principle, parties can only initiate a setting aside procedure against arbitral awards. Because of the absence of an international convention regulating setting aside actions, the procedure and the grounds for annulment are regulated in national laws. In our international commercial arbitration law courses, we study the setting aside procedure from a comparative law perspective. Our student symposium, however, focuses directly on Turkish international arbitration law and, in this sense, it complements the analysis of foreign laws made during our classes. In this symposium, five students shared the grounds for setting aside among themselves and they presented the results of their comprehensive research on Turkish case-law and doctrine.
