Greetings from Centre for Alternative Dispute Resolution (CADR), Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab.
We hope that you and your loved ones continue to remain well and safe.
It has been yet another eventful month in the world of ADR!
The International Chambers of Commerce (ICC) released its new draft 2021 Arbitration Rules, the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) put a restrain on the Reliance and Future Group, Rs 24,713-crore deal, and the UK Supreme Court laid down a test to determine the governing law of an arbitration agreement.
Moreover, upholding an ICC Arbitral Award, the ISRO’s commercial arm, Antrix, was asked to pay a sum of $ 1.2 Billion to Devas Multimedia; the Bangladesh India Mediators Forum, was set up; and Eni (oil and gas comany) filed a request for arbitration against Nigeria at the World Bank’s international Centre for Settlement of Investor Disputes (ICSID). All this, and more, in the Newsletter for the month of October!
It’s been a busy month for us at CADR too, as we continue serving the ADR Community with events and research. The CADR blog witnessed yet another successful month with write-ups on novel intersections in the world of ADR such as the article on, ‘Arbitrability Of Competition Law and Intellectual Property Rights Disputes in Light of the Monsanto Judgement’. The Blog continues to accept submissions on rolling basis.

Each volume follows a vigorous process of compilation and is vetted twice – including by industry professionals. For more information on how we create the Newsletter, you may check our Note.
The Newsletter initiative began with the observation that there exists a lacuna in the provision of information relating to ADR to the practicing community, and we wanted to provide a solution to the same. In keeping with that, we are glad to have many practitioners and students subscribe to the Newsletter and the Blog after the launch of the first issue.
To subscribe to the CADR Newsletter, you may send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, you may subscribe to the CADR Blog via our homepage and you will receive a notification whenever we launch a volume of the Newsletter.
As always, we await with bated breath for your feedback on our Newsletter. We hope to hear from you soon! For any other query, please feel free to contact us. For more information about our activities, please follow/like us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and our Blog.
