Lunch DIScussions: Persuasion and Psychology of Witness Evidence


11. Apr 2024

Veranstalter: DIS

Witnesses are ambivalent evidence. On the one hand, witness evidence is obviously error-prone by the fragile nature of human memory as well as the high degree of subjectivity involved but, at the same time, the weighing of witness evidence plays an important role in the decision-making process of arbitrators. This event seeks to shed some light on the complex interplay between the psychology of witnesses and arbitrators and the perceived persuasiveness of witness evidence.

The topic will be discussed by an international panel including Frederik Kromann Jespersen (Skau Reipurth), Stephanie Farrimond (Bond Solon), and János Vajda (Szecskay Attorneys), who combine the practice and experience in international arbitrations with the science of legal psychology, and will be moderated by Roland Kläger (Haver & Mailänder).
