The SCLA is a maximum three-month procedure for the resolution of “technology” disputes. That is any dispute arising from a contract for the provision of tech-related goods and services including software development contracts, outsourcing arrangements, systems integration contracts, IT consultancy contracts, software licensing agreements, blockchain/smart contracts and cloud computing contracts.

The Scheme is the result of considerable work of an SCL drafting committee, which included Matthew Lavy, and in the course of the session many of the key features of the Scheme will be discussed.
