Jun Wang to present international arbitration webinar to Mainland lawyers in South China’s economic powerhouse

10 Nov 2020

On 21 November 2020 Jun Wang will be presenting a webinar on contract interpretation in international arbitration organised by the Fujian (Hokkien) Provincial Lawyers Association and Xiamen Municipal Lawyers Association.  He will speak about how international arbitral tribunals interpret contracts governed by the laws of common law jurisdictions (such as England & Wales) compared to those subject to the laws of civil law jurisdictions (such as Mainland China). His talk will focus on some of the key differences while acknowledging the common ground.  He will also discuss if governing law is really a big factor in international arbitration and to what extent tribunals in practice read and interpret the contracts for themselves.
