On the occasion of the 15th International Commercial Arbitration Annual Lecture of the Washington College of Law on 24 September 2020, Professor Gaillard described “seven dirty tricks” that parties use to disrupt arbitral proceedings and how arbitrators and courts should respond to prevent recalcitrant behaviour infecting the entire system.
