Pendulum Arbitration on TV

I recorded a TV programme for BenchTV on pendulum arbitration the other day, being interviewed by Christopher Chin. BenchTV have not yet put it out, but I think that will not be too far in the future. My paper for the South Australian Bar Association is here, but this interview should provide a helpful and readily digestible first look into the topic for a wider audience.

These black backgrounds make one look a bit scary, but hopefully that will not detract too much from what is, I think, a significant weapon in the arsenal of dispute resolution.

What about the lecture I am doing for the Society of Construction Law in London in December on ‘Claims Outside the Contract’ alongside Christopher Seppälä from White & Case’s Paris office? In short, I will be talking about extra-contractual recoveries in common law (the topic of my most recent book), and Christopher will look at them from a civil law perspective. Should I turn up in person (it is a long flight for just one event)? Or do it by video from Myponga Beach? If I do it in person, my background will not be black. Or even blurred. But the National Liberal Club. Which has majestically hosted the lectures to the Society of Construction Law for decades. And anyway, whilst I have no present plans for a second edition, I would welcome the opportunity to talk to Christopher about this stuff.

And anyway, the Covid thing meant that many of us did not travel nearly enough for far too long?
