    On June 14, 2013, Beijing Arbitration Commission (hereinafter referred to as “BAC”) held “Unlocking the Intricacies of Commercial Dispute Resolution in China” jointly with Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (hereinafter referred to as “IALS”) in London. Taking BAC’s organization of drafting the Annual Review on Commercial Dispute Resolution in China (2013) (hereinafter referred to as “Report”) as the opportunity, this forum brought more than 20 experts from China and UK together, including the experts and scholars from famous universities, senior partners of world renowned law firms and QCs. All the participants warmly and deeply discussed such topics as China’s commercial dispute arbitration, mediation, and construction engineering, intellectual property, and financial dispute settlement; what’s more, the presence and wonderful comments of several British judges and politicians made the forum more attractive.
