Lawyer Monthly - November 2022

THOUGHT LEADER 75 After a day of fruitful discussions at the UNCITRAL Academy Conference on 30 August 2022, participants gathered along the rich historic lanes of Emerald Hill for a casual evening of networking with light bites and drinks. SC Week 2022 participants were given a ‘taste’ of Singapore through various curated activities on 28 August 2022. The Market to Table Culinary Experience brought participants to a wet market to pick out fresh ingredients and cook local favourites such as chicken rice, alongside professional chefs. Gin enthusiasts who signed up for the Brass Lion Distillery Tour learnt more about the distilling process and sampled some locally made spirits. An exclusive tour of the former Supreme Court gave participants the opportunity to explore areas of the historic building not usually open to the public. To cap off the day, participants set sail on an evening Singapore River Cruise to take in the sights of Singapore’s nightscape from an iconic traditional bumboat. Breaking with Convention Networking Event Experience Singapore Role of SC Week in promoting international dispute resolution 5 6 SC Week 2022 was made possible with the strong support of UNCITRAL, our partner organisations and student volunteers. The success of SC Week 2022 is a testament to the pivotal role that Singapore continues to play in promoting global thought leadership and bringing expert practitioners, academics and business leaders together to share best practices and insights on international dispute resolution amidst a changing operating landscape. The Singapore Convention on Mediation is an essential instrument in the facilitation of international trade and the promotion of mediation as an effective cross-border dispute resolution option. SC Week reinforces our commitment to the Convention and to multilateralism. Highlights of the SC Week 2022 are available at:
