The National Law University, Delhi is organizing a Symposium on Arbitration Laws on the 16th of May, 2015. The Symposium promises to be an exciting event and will comprise of 2 sessions.

Schedule: 1st Session: 10.45 – 1.30 pm (Interpretation of Pre-BALCO agreements)

Lunch: 1.30 – 2.30 pm

2nd Session: 2.30-4 pm (Reference of non-signatory parties to arbitration)

High Tea: 4 – 5 pm

The First Session deals with Interpretation of Pre-BALCO agreements. Considering the string of cases from Bhatia till Reliance Industries, the panellists will provide a ring side view of the development of arbitration jurisprudence.

We have 4 speakers as a part of the first panel: Mr. Gourab Banerji, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India & Former ASG, Mr. Ajay Thomas, Director & Registrar, LCIA (India), Mr. Daniel Mathew (Assistant Professor, NLU Delhi) and Dr. Ruhi Paul (Associate Professor, NLU Delhi).

The Second session deals with the issue surrounding reference of Non-Signatory Parties to Arbitration. Chloro Controls applied the ‘group of companies’ doctrine’ to provide jurisdiction of the arbitral tribunal over a non-signatory.

The recent 246th Law Commission Report has suggested expanding the definition of ‘party’ to include ‘persons claiming through or under such party’. The session seeks to engage in a discussion about the role of prominent theories dictating jurisdiction of arbitral tribunals over a non-signatory (viz. group of companies, estoppels etc.) and their grounding in the Indian Law.

The second session will have 2 speakers: Mr. Debesh Panda is a practicing lawyer who focuses on arbitration related matters before the Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court & Mr Ashutosh Ray who serves as the Law Assistant to Justice A.M. Ahmadi (Former CJI).
