The British High Commissioner, Her Excellency Vicki Treadell CMG, MVO, and the University of London request the pleasure of your company for a panel discussion and reception on Wednesday, 25 October at 6:30pm.

Following welcome remarks graciously given by Her Excellency, we are delighted to host a panel discussion on ‘Arbitration is not about just settlement it is just about settlement.’ 

Arbitration is now an essential part of the civil justice system and plays an invaluable role in settling commercial disputes. While arbitration, unlike other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, operates within a legal framework and provides the parties with a legally binding decision it remains nevertheless a private and confidential form of justice. Should we be concerned that this privatisation of civil justice will diminish the value of public adjudication and lead to an erosion of the common law or is the ‘vanishing trial’ simply part of our legal evolution?

Our panel includes distinguished University of London alumni who hold senior roles in the legal profession in Malaysia. Notably this includes the Honorable Datuk Dr. Haji Hamid Sultan bin Abu Backer.

The discussion will be moderated by Dr Mary Stiasny, Pro Vice-Chancellor, International, University of London and Chief Executive, University of London International Programmes.

Admission is free, but places MUST be reserved in advance. You will be sent an official invitation once your registration is confirmed; this must be brought with you.

Please note security checks will be in place; no large bags (larger than a normal handbag) or devices larger than a phone are allowed on-site.
