The CIDS co-organized the first edition of the "Swiss Chalet Debates" with the International Center for Dispute Resolution Young & International (ICDR Y&I), following the format of traditional coffee-house debates.

The discussions focused on the "Role of Counsel in Documents Production" and addressed the questions of the duties of counsels in that respects and of the sanctions that non-observation of these duties entail.
