PlaceNäringslivets Hus, Storgatan 19, Stockholm

What legal and other sources are applied in arbitration in Sweden?

Arbitration in Sweden takes place in an environment with a multitude of potential sources, some of a mandatory nature and some offering guidance. Such sources include not only Swedish lex arbitri, being the Swedish Arbitration Act of 1999 and Swedish court cases, but may include various rules and guidelines from bodies such as the IBA and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, writings by legal scholars and arbitration practitioners, international arbitral awards, rulings by foreign courts, and inferences drawn from Swedish domestic court procedure.
During the seminar we will debate these sources, their inner ranking and appropriateness in domestic and international arbitral proceedings from the perspective of counsel, arbitrators and legal scholars.

The seminar will be led by:

  • Johnny Herre, Justice of the Swedish Supreme Court, who will act as seminar moderator;
  • James Hope, Partner of Vinge, Stockholm;
  • Christina Ramberg, Professor at Stockholm University;
  • Johan Sidklev, Partner of Setterwalls, Stockholm.

The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception and launch party for the new book Arbitration in Sweden.
