The Accuracy of Fact Witness Memory in International Arbitration

Wednesday, 13 October 2021

A Taskforce created within the ICC’s Commission on Arbitration and ADR prepared a report on The Accuracy of Fact Witness Memory in International Arbitration. 

This Report emanated from a speech presented by Toby Landau QC entitled ‘Unreliable Recollections, False Memories and Witness Testimony’ which provided an insight into the science of human memory.

This Report looks at the science with input from eminent psychologists in the context of arbitral practice and the probative value of fact witness evidence in international arbitration.

Join Toby Landau QC and Mary Walker, Chair of the ADR Committee on 13 October 2021 to discuss this innovative report.
