Take the Witness: Cross-Examination in  International Arbitration JURIS Conferences LLC
September 6, 2019 | Hamburg, Germany
Join us in Hamburg for the latest installment of Take the Witness: Cross-Examination in International Arbitration, a series of seminars hosted by Lawrence W. Newman. This conference, co-chaired by Mr. Newman and Timothy G. Nelson, will bring together a group of some of the best-known and experienced practitioners in the field of international arbitration, both advocates and arbitrators, to discuss and then demonstrate how to crossexamine witnesses in an international arbitration.  The program, which will include an introduction to the basics of cross-examination and further tips, plus sessions of simulated cross-examinations (featuring mock counsel, witnesses, experts, and even a faux tribunal), will demonstrate that not all international arbitrations – and not all witnesses – are the same. The program’s format is intended to be interactive and engaging, allowing for discussion and participation. Guidelines, tactics, techniques, ideas, and advice to be followed or at least considered in conducting cross-examination will be discussed, analyzed, and demonstrated. Topics covered will include: • Fundamentals of cross-examination. • Cross-examination before international tribunals. • Experienced international arbitrators’ views of the effectiveness of crossexamination. • Dealing with “impeachment” issues (faulty memory, bias, contradictory testimony). • Cross-examination before civil law arbitrators. • The differences between cross-examining fact witnesses and expert witnesses. • Handling written witness statements and effectively cross-examining on them. • How to influence and persuade arbitrators – what works, what doesn’t. • Using documents effectively.
For the newer entrant into international arbitration, the conference will be a source of learning. For the experienced, it will serve as a refresher of advocacy skills. Participants will benefit from better understanding and appreciating the nuances and process of successful cross-examination in international arbitration; regardless of prior experience, they will be rendered more effective cross-examiners. The conference follows the launch of the 2019 Second Edition of Take the Witness: Cross-Examination in International Arbitration. All conference attendees will receive a free copy of the new edition of this work, which was first published in 2010 and has been widely praised. Take the Witness: Cross-Examination in International Arbitration features insights from leading practitioners across the world. It has provided a framework for numerous past interactive seminars on cross-examination, and we are excited to present this latest seminar in Hamburg, Germany.
