HISTORY

The first Russian Arbitration Day (RAD) took place in 2013 at the initiative of Roman Khodykin, Anton Asoskov and Aleksandr Muranov, with the support from the International Commercial Arbitration Court and Maritime Arbitration Commission of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation. RAD’s conceptual foundation enabled it to establish itself as a promising venue to exchange fresh ideas and discover new names in the Russian arbitration. RAD 2013–2015 website.

RUSSIAN ARBITRATION DAY 2013–2015:

  • Over 1,000 participants
  • Over 500 online viewers
  • Diverse geographic representation of participants and speakers: countries of the CIS, Northern, Central Eastern and Western Europe, USA, Canada, China, India, Singapore and Australia
  • Three volumes of digest ‘New Horizons of International Arbitration’ summarizing the results.

RAD has a number of advantages over other arbitration conferences:

  • Free-of-charge participation for everyone, including speakers. Unlike other conferences, sponsors cannot promote a speaker;
  • Presentation time of 20 to 25 minutes per speaker for an elaborated report. We want the Conference to be as informative as possible for everyone, therefore, in order to provide more time for the speakers’ presentations, their number is limited;
  • Thorough competitive selection of speakers by moderators according to objective criteria to determine the most innovative and profound topics. Mandatory preliminary submission of papers and articles by the speakers on the topic of their presentation;
  • Encouraging new faces to participate, discovering new names in Russian arbitration;
  • Publication of a digest of articles by RAD speakers prior to the Conference, in which the topics of presentations are further elaborated. At moderators’ discretion the digest may include articles by authors not presenting at RAD.

Resuming RAD in 2018, the organizers plan to maintain all the advantages of such a unique format, foster its development and transform it into a world-wide event.

SELECTION PROCESS

To become a RAD speaker, candidates should submit their draft papers to moderators responsible for selection.

Khodikin

“We are not in it to gain any profit. This is why we select speakers based on novelty and depth of their research and do not charge any participation fees. Russian Arbitration Day found its niche among arbitration conferences not by accident – it is a forum for those who are ready to go beyond threadbare topics. A lot still remains unstudied in the arbitration field, but not many are willing to undertake new research since it requires thorough preparation, time, effort and willingness,” comments Roman Khodykin, partner at the London office of Berwin Leighton Paisner law firm.

Muranov

One of the major ideas of RAD — competitive selection of reports, encouraging contest. Competitiveness is natural for arbitration, so why not to involve it in the Conference? As a result, a beginner who has thoroughly worked off his subject can be more preferable for RAD than an unprepared master. Therefore, it is a good chance for all actively interested in arbitration to prove oneself or to speak out. However, in contrast to arbitration where usually only one party wins, RAD uses a “win-win” strategy for individual researchers and practitioners, listeners and the whole area of arbitration, — says Aleksandr Muranov, Managing partner at Muranov, Chernyakov & Partners, about the special format of the event.

SELECTION CRITERIA:

  • 1. Innovation

    Priority will be given in the selection process to authors proposing papers on new or topical themes, research into which is not found in the Russian literature or is insufficient.

  • 2. Thorough theoretical workup of theme:

    Authors are expected to analyse the current literature (both Russian and foreign) as well as judicial and arbitral practice in depth.

  • 3. Practical value

    The implications of the paper for practice will be taken into account

  • 4. Other criteria

    Consideration will be given to the author’s academic qualifications/positions and experience in international arbitration practice. Together with a draft paper, candidates may submit a draft of an article, which will be taken into consideration.
