Ban on foreign lawyers – another nail in the coffin of India’s international arbitration dreams

Some Indian students at Oxford have started a blog called Critical Twenties which discusses a wide range of topics from sports to law. They were kind enough to invite me to send a few guest posts.

My first post in Critical Twenties discusses how India's ban on foreign lawyers impacts its attempts at becoming an international arbitration destination. I suggest that an exception be made so that foreign lawyers can appear before international arbitral tribunals proceeding in India. I believe, without this, no amount of amendment to arbitration law will really serve the goal of making India a preferred seat of arbitration.
