Selection of arbitrators
Which topics are inappropriate
Notwithstanding the general acceptance
of pre-appointment interviews, not all
topics were considered to be suitable for
discussion with prospective arbitrators.
The following three topics were identified
as the most inappropriate to be raised at
pre-appointment interviews: ‘the candidate’s
position on legal questions relevant to the
case’ (84%); ‘whether the candidate is a
strict constructionist or someone who is
influenced by the equities of the case’ (64%);
and ‘prior views expressed, for example as
an expert or arbitrator, on a particular legal
issue’ (59%). The finding that a clear majority
is against the classic ‘strict constructionist v.
equity’ question is particularly noteworthy.
