“Looking back, it is a pleasure to realize that the Russian Arbitration Day has made, perhaps, one of the most sustainable contribution in the development of the Russian international arbitration studies for the past several years. Due to the process of thorough selection of new and highly-qualified papers, each digest and each Conference has granted the Russian arbitration society researches of understudied (at least in Russia) fields of the modern arbitration. Undoubtedly, a lot of interesting works on the arbitration are published on an ongoing basis in Russia and not fewer amount of arbitration Conferences are held, but the uniqueness of RAD is that at one point of time a vast number of highly-concentrated and top-class scientific works are released in the scientific circulation. RAD contest has already become global, but we always have a place for those who are ready to step out of the common studies and to spend time and energy to research challenges of the modern international arbitration,” writes Roman Khodykin, PhD in Law, Partner of the London London office of the Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP.
“Every year Russian Arbitration Day attracts more and more talented speakers. It’s a unique platform for specialists in the sphere of international arbitration who may present the results of their studies as an article in the final digest or as a speech at the Conference. Unlike other Conferences we choose speakers not for the readiness to pay sponsorship fees, but for the quality of their works,” comments Anton Asoskov, Doctor of Juridical Science, professor of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, member of the Presidium of the International Commercial Arbitration Court at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation.
“Being relatively young, Russian Arbitration Day at this point has managed to make a big name for itself among scholars and practitioners interested in the sphere of international arbitration proceedings. RAD’s great popularity is shown not only by growing number of the event’s participants and the amount of incoming papers, but also by the published digest, concluding the Russian Arbitration Day, that has been marked with a high rating in the professional field. Here is incomplete list of objective reasons why Russian Arbitration Day is becoming more popular in the professional sphere: objective and detailed shortlisting of the incoming studies for the selection, combination of the theoretical and practical significance criteria, a wider coverage of topics related to the international arbitration proceedings including the absence of subject limits for studies matching with specific legal systems and, also, appliance of the unified criteria for shortlisting: beginners as well as well-experienced specialists have a chance to take part in the Conference,” says Alexei Zhiltsov, Honored Lawyer of the Russian Federation, member of the Presidium of the International Commercial Arbitration Court at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation.
