Partner Simon Batifort Moderates ASIL Webinar on Psychology in Oral Advocacy

Partner Simon Batifort will co-moderate an ASIL webinar on “Psychology in Oral Advocacy: Using Science to Persuade International Tribunals,” on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 at 11:00am (EDT) / 5:00 pm (CET). The session has been organized by Mr. Batifort and Rémy Gerbay (Hughes Hubbard) as co-chairs of the ASIL Dispute Resolution Interest Group (DRIG) and by London-based associate Belén Ibanez, who serves as DRIG Secretary.

The session will feature a mix of international arbitration practitioners, academics, and scientists who will discuss the psychology behind effective oral advocacy with reference to scientific research. Which legally irrelevant human factors influence judicial and arbitral decisions? How can cognitive biases impact decision-makers? How do stories and metaphors influence decision-making? Which submissions capture attention and why?

The event is free of charge and CLE credits will be available to attendees. To register, please click here.
