Abstract

This book chapter surveys existing conflicts among national ethical rules in international arbitration, analyzes recent developments in legal ethics and proposes innovations for the international arbitration community to manage and resolve these conflicts in a manner that will both alleviate the practical problems that arise in the absence of shared ethical principles, and strengthen the system as it works to develop and enforce internally its own international legal ethics. It is one chapter in a larger volume, The Art of Advocacy in International Arbitration, edited by Doak Bishop and Edward Kehoe, which provides analysis about the inner workings of the international arbitration system and guidance for counsel operating in that system.

Keywords: ethics, choice of law, legal profession, international arbitration, conflict of laws, international tribunals
