On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the School of Law of the City University of Hong Kong (CityU), the Centre for Chinese and Comparative Law of the CityU will organize the conference on ‘Dispute Resolution in Asia and Beyond: Progress and Trends’ on 17 and 18 May 2018 in Hong Kong. Several (leading) foreign professional lawyers and academics will contribute to the conference, which has a broad scope. Dr Jeroen van der Weide (Institute of Private Law) will give his presentation on ‘The Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC) – challenges & perspectives’. The NCC, which is expected to launch later this year, is a special chamber of the Amsterdam District Court and the Amsterdam Court of Appeal, specialised in hearing complex cross-border commercial cases. The proceedings will be conducted in English. The same goes for the judgments rendered by the NCC.
