Should the Setting Aside of an Arbitral Award Be Abolished?

A rather provocative question – to which I do not pretend to have the answer. But ist appears that Professor Albert Jan van den Berg may have it. He will deliver the 2nd Karl-Heinz Böckstiegel Lecture on that topic. The lecture is organized by the German Institution for Arbitration in honour of Karl-Heinz-Böckstiegel, its long-time president and current honorary president. It will be held on September 13, 2013 at Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg, Bergisch Gladbach, near Cologne.

Albert Jan van den Berg may not need much of an introduction in arbitration circles, but here is one, nevertheless, taken from the DIS invitation:

Albert Jan van den Berg  is a partner in Hanotiau & van den Berg, Brussels.  He is a Professor of Law (arbitration chair) at Erasmus University, Rotterdam and a Visiting Professor at University of Miami School of Law and Tsinghua University in Beijing.  Professor van den Berg acts as presiding and party-appointed arbitrator in numerous international commercial and investment arbitrations.  He also is counsel in international commercial arbitrations.  He is a member ICCA and General Editor of the ICCA Publications.  Professor van den Berg was awarded “Arbitration Lawyer of the Year Award” by The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers in 2006 and 2011 and the “Best prepared/most responsive arbitrator” in 2013 by Global Arbitration Review.
