Under the theme “Pre – pandemic vs. Post pandemic: Development in International Arbitration”, Alice Meissner from ECAA discussed on the 19th May  with distinguished speakers, Christopher Lau SC, Chartered Arbitrator, Vice President of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), Yusi Chen (Beijing), CIETAC Case Division, Avi Zamir, Judge (Ret.), Arbitrator and Mediator, A. Gabrieli & Co. and Marcel Wegmüller, Co-CEO of Nivalion AG on the new post-pandemic changes in the international arbitration practice: Will remote-hearing become the new normal? The overall conclusion was that online connections and video conferences have indeed become more feasible and more common – however, in-person hearings are yet necessary and demanded by parties in international arbitration.
