June 2021 Issue of the Newsletter out now!

Dear Reader,

Greetings from The Centre for Alternative Dispute Resolution (CADR), Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab.

We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

We are elated to bring to you the Sixth Issue of the Third Volume of the CADR Newsletter.

The world of ADR has been as lively as it could be and the month of June proves the same.

Indian arbitration jurisprudence develops with new judgments and findings of the various courts, such as the one where the Supreme Court held that provisions of Limitation act will be applicable on Arbitration Proceedings under Section 18(3) of the MSMED Act, the Delhi High Court (in another case) opined that the defence of sovereign immunity cannot be claimed by a Foreign State against the enforcement of an arbitral award and the Bombay High Court (in yet another case) explained that an arbitrator can act as an amiable compositeur only if the underlying contract permits the same.

In the world of international commercial and investment arbitration, the Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC) released its draft on new “International Arbitration Rules” for public comment, Singapore permits “third-party funding” of domestic arbitration proceedings, SICC proceedings and mediation proceedings related to the same, the Pakistani PM Imran Khan approves a new Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) template, and The Vienna International Arbitration Centre (VIAC) launched new VIAC Rules of Investment Arbitration, and VIAC Rules of Investment Mediation.

All this, and more, in the Newsletter for the month of June!

It’s been a busy month for us at CADR too, as we continue serving the ADR Community with events and research. CADR is organizing an International Virtual Conference on Regulation of Sports and Entertainment Law, in collaboration with Jagran Lakecity University, Bhopal. The Conference is scheduled to be held on August 1, 2021.

It’s been a hectic month for CADR Blog too! Party Autonomy & Public Policy Vis-À-Vis Indian Parties Choosing a Foreign Seat of Arbitration, Retrospective Taxation Regime and India-UK BIT: A Glance through the Cairn Case were some of the important topics on which blogs were published in June. The Blog continues to accept submissions on a rolling basis.

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 look forward to hear feedback on our Newsletter. We hope to hear from you soon!
