December 2020 Issue of the Newsletter now out!

Dear Reader,

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.

The Twelfth Issue of the Second Volume of the CADR Newsletter is now out.

December has witnessed a great many exciting developments in the ADR universe.

The Bankruptcy law in Brazil was amended to provide that a declaration of bankruptcy or judicial reorganization would not suspend arbitral proceedings, a petition for a writ of Certiorari was filed in the US Supreme Court to clarify if parties can seek discovery in the US for use in commercial arbitration proceedings seated outside the United States, and a ban on Russia from competing in major sporting events was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (while the term for the said ban was reduced from four to two years).

Additionally, the Supreme Court of India held that tenancy disputes under the Transfer of Property Act, 1882 were arbitrable, the Delhi High Court clarified that the provision of an emergency arbitrator under the SIAC Rules, cannot be said to be contrary to the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 and the Government of India challenged the Vodafone Arbitration Award (passed by the Permanent Court of Arbitration) in a Singapore court. In more bad news for India on the Investment Arbitration front, a three-member tribunal held that the claims of the Indian Government were not valid, and it was liable to pay USD 1.4 billion to Cairn Energy PLC.

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 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.

Regards, Aditya Mathur, Executive Editor, Newsletter Centre for Alternative Dispute Resolution.
