Jurisdictional Choices in Times of Trouble

          Paris, 15 May 2014

          The choice of jurisdiction is undoubtedly one of the most important provisions of a contract. Indeed this clause determines the judicial Court, and its rules of conflict, or the arbitral tribunal, whose role will be to give effect to the parties' agreement on the substance and on the applicable law.

          In this discussion, Georges Affaki, Chairman of the Legal Committee of the ICC Banking Commission and Council member of the ICC Institute of World Business Law talks with Silvia Chaver from the ICC Training & Conferences team about the event 'Jurisdictional Choices in Times of Trouble', taking place at the ICC Institute Spring Conference in Paris, 23 May, 2014.
