Event Outline

The idea of parties exchanging written statements in place of evidence-in-chief emerged first in English litigation in the 1980s. The aim of this development was to allow each party to know in advance the case against them and to promote settlement. In international arbitration today, such statements are sometimes lengthy documents that reflect not so much the recollection of a witness, but the industry of the parties’ legal teams to leave no evidential stone unturned, unaddressed or unpolished.
