The ICC International Court of Arbitration unveiled its 2021 Rules of Arbitration on 1st December 2020. 

The "new" Rules make noticeable changes to the framework of ICC arbitration, while not altering its character. In the words of ICC Court President Alexis Mourre, the 2021 ICC Rules “mark a further step towards greater efficiency, flexibility and transparency of the Rules, making ICC Arbitration even more attractive, both for large, complex arbitrations and for smaller cases.”  

This national launch in the Philippines will invite members of the ICC Court to introduce the main changes to the Rules. Professional legal practitioners will also join the panel to discuss these changes in the context of their legal practices.
