The ROAP Asia Finals brings to a close our advanced remote oral advocacy and cross-examination courses, by featuring the most persuasive and skilled participants on each course. The outcome of the finals will be determined by a panel of world-class arbitrators comprising Lucy Reed (President), to whom this ROAP Asia 2022 edition is dedicated, Sapna Jhangiani QC and Nicholas Lingard. The short bios of the tribunal members and of the finalists are set out below.
The event will take place on 1 September 2022 from 2.20pm to 7.20pm KST. It will be held online and, for the first time, in person as well, in Singapore at Maxwell Chambers, and be followed by a reception (after 7.20pm KST).
