Your First Hostile Cross-Examination - Dos and Don'ts

Date: 31 July 2020

Time: 16.00 (CEST)

We are pleased to invite you to attend the Young ICCA Webinar on “Your First Hostile Cross-Examination – Dos and Don’ts” that will take place on Friday 31 July 2020 from 16.00 to 17.15 CEST. 

The following international arbitration practitioners will join us for the webinar:

  • Prof. Juan Fernandéz-Armesto, Armesto & Asociados, Madrid
  • Mr. Thomas Kendra, Hogan Lovells (Paris) LLP
  • Ms. Silvia Marroquín, Chaffetz Lindsey LLP, New York

The Webinar will be structured in two parts:

1. Panel Discussion (approximately 20 mins): The panelists will identify and discuss best practices for the cross-examination of fact witnesses.  

2. Mock Cross-Examination (approximately 30-35 mins): The panelists will conduct a mock cross-examination, based on a mock case, which will be sent out to registrants prior to the webinar.

Submit your questions: To help shape the Panel Discussion, each registered participant is invited to share a couple of questions related to the topic of the webinar in the registration form. Time permitting, registered participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions live, by turning on their microphone or using the chat function.

Registration: Prior registration is required and there are limited spots available for this Webinar. Participants will generally be confirmed on a first come first served basis. Click here to register. 

We look forward to welcoming you to this sixth instalment of the Young ICCA Webinar Series.

Additional information:

  • Please do not record the webinar. The webinar will be recorded and made publicly available on the Young ICCA website, which in some circumstances may allow you to be identified, such as if you submit a written question and the organiser refers to you by name. It is possible that this may result in the processing of your personal data within the meaning of data protection legislation (such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation). You can avoid this processing by asking that your question be posed anonymously (for questions submitted before the webinar) or by joining the webinar using a pseudonym (for questions submitted via the Q&A or chat function). Any processing that does take place will be necessary for the legitimate interests of ICCA in replicating the workshop-style setting by allowing participants to be identified unless they do not want to be.
  • Please do not share the Zoom access link with non-registered people, this link is personal to you.
  • During the webinar, participants may be able to see the usernames of other participants. Although the organisers expect that participants will want to use their actual name and affiliation as a username (e.g. Lucy Burns, ICCA Bureau), this is not mandatory and you can join using a pseudonym if you wish.
  • If your registration for the webinar has been confirmed but you are unable to attend, please cancel your participation to allow others to attend in your place.
  • The Young ICCA Co-Chairs will select a participant to prepare a written summary of the webinar for the website. If you would like to be considered, please contact us after the webinar at
