The UNCITRAL Model Law after Twenty-Five Years: Global Perspectives on International Commercial Arbitration is a celebration of the Model Law’s significant contribution to international arbitration law. It assesses and evaluates the Model Law’s impact on the development of a universal arbitration law for a complex and mobile transnational community of lawyers, judges and arbitrators. Written from the perspective of counsel, arbitrators, legislators and judges, this collection is bold in its coverage of Model Law practice. It considers questions of legislative implementation; pre-award issues such as the review of arbitral jurisdiction and the production of evidence; post-award issues such as judicial review of arbitral awards; interpretation and harmonization methods; and questions of future reform. This is one of the only books on the market that considers the application of the UNCITRAL Model Law in both great depth and breadth, and from multiple perspectives. It provides critical assessments and evaluations of the impact that the Model Law has had after 25 years in various aspects of the arbitral process. The issues covered pertain to both substantive and procedural elements; theoretical and practical; historical and evolutional. The UNCITRAL Model Law after Twenty-Five Years: Global Perspectives on International Commercial Arbitration adopts a comparative approach and covers practice in nearly all Model Law countries and many others. As a seminal critique of the progress that the Model Law has made to date, this collection of articles will be of great benefit to judges, arbitrators, lawyers, academics and anyone interested in the future of international commercial arbitration.

Arbitration and Contract Law

Common Law Perspectives

This book deals with the contractual platform for arbitration and the application of contractual norms to the parties' dispute. Arbitration and agreement are inter-linked in three respects: (i) the agreement to arbitrate is itself a contract; (ii) there is scope (subject to clear consensual exclusion) in England for monitoring the arbitral tribunal's fidelity and accuracy in applying substantive English contract law; (iii) the subject-matter of the arbitration is nearly always a ‘contractual’ matter. These three elements underlie this work. They appear as Part I (arbitration is founded on agreement), Part II (monitoring accuracy), Part III (synopsis of the English contractual rules frequently encountered within arbitration). The book will be a useful resource to foreign lawyers or English non-lawyers, English lawyers seeking a succinct discussion, and to arbitral tribunals.​

The Effect of the 1958 New York Convention on Foreign Arbitral Awards in the Arab Gulf States

In the second half of the twentieth century, alongside the evolution of the global economy, modern technology, rapid transportation and multinational enterprises, there was an increased demand for a dispute resolution mechanism that met the needs of traders, international trade and economic policy-makers. Arbitration as an alternative dispute resolution has significantly gained in popularity in the Arab Gulf States over the past two decades or so. This is no doubt reason enough to take a closer look at the main theme that defines arbitration in this region. National courts of the Arab Gulf states are invariably seen as not very arbitration friendly, some possibly even hostile to arbitration. Public order, alongside the Islamic legal traditions, is seen as unruly horse that could possibly undermine the development of international commercial arbitration in this region. The contribution in this book will go some way toward dissipating the concerns that are routinely raised about the procedural and practical soundness of arbitration in the Arab Gulf states. In addition, the book serves to place arbitration in the Arab Gulf states in its present legal systems, national laws and courts practices.

The Rise of Transparency in International Arbitration

The Rise of Transparency in International Arbitration is inspired by a joint research conducted in the last years by the Milan Chamber of Arbitration and the Law School of the University Carlo Cattaneo–LIUC, Castellanza, in Italy. The two bodies have shared a common concern in order to increase the use of international commercial arbitration and to develop a proper culture in the field: the need for enhancing transparency and especially for a wider dissemination of arbitral awards. The advantages of arbitration as the main alternative means of dispute resolution are well known and undisputed. Privacy and confidentiality are among them and at the same time among the prevailing features of any arbitral proceedings. However, sometimes users have the feeling to deal with a close and too slow-growing world. The need, if not the request, for a greater accountability of the arbitral world in the whole is more and more widespread. In this context the aim of this book is on the one hand to spur discussion and to shed new light on the traditional idea of confidentiality in international commercial arbitration (and in some other figures alike). Although this idea is sometimes founded upon sound reasons that cannot be ignored or totally set aside, it must be reconsidered by taking into account the rise of transparency. On the other hand, a specific proposal is made in order to step ahead from the current situation, with particular reference to the issue of the publication of the awards. In this respect, the main outcome is the Guidelines for the Anonymous Publication of Arbitral Awards, already adopted and experienced by the Milan Chamber. They are addressed to institutions, practitioners, scholars with the goal to favor the circulation of the awards and of the related decisions.

The Notion of Award in International Commercial Arbitration

A Comparative Analysis of French Law, English Law, and the UNCITRAL Model Law

About the author: Giacomo Marchisio is Academic Coordinator of the Private Justice and the Rule of Law Research Group at McGill University, Canada and holds a Doctorate in Civil Law (DCL) and an LL.M. in Comparative Law from the same university. He is a member of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Task Force on Emergency Arbitration, of ICC Canada, and Young Canadian Arbitration Practitioners (YCAP). About this book: The Notion of Award in International Commercial Arbitration aims to provide a comprehensive explanation of the notion of arbitral award in international commercial arbitration. International commercial arbitration relies extensively on the possibility of enforcing arbitral decisions against recalcitrant parties. As courts and arbitration laws across the world take contrasting approaches to the definition of awards, such enforcement can be problematic, especially in the context of awards by consent and the recent development known as 'emergency arbitration'. In this timely and groundbreaking book, a young arbitration scholar takes us through the difficulties of defining the notion of arbitral award with a rare combination of theoretical awareness and attention to the procedural requirements of arbitral practice. What's in this book: In a framework using a comparative analysis of common law and civil law jurisdictions (specifically, England and France) and how each has regulated in different ways the equilibria between state justice and arbitral justice, - and comparing each with the UNCITRAL Model Law - this book addresses such issues as the following: * the 'judicialization' of arbitration; * different models of arbitral adjudication and their impact on the notion of award; * what an award needs to contain to be enforceab≤ * awards on competence; * awards by consent; and * awards ante causam. The author employs a methodology that views arbitration as providing an institution for administering justice rather than as a purely contractual creature. To this end, rules of arbitral institutions (particularly the ICC) are examined closely for their implications on what an award means. How this will help you: Having a fresh look at the arbitral award by placing it in a broader context than is usually found, this book allows for a greater understanding of the functioning and evolution of contemporary international commercial arbitration. This book clarifies the status of controversial decisions, such as jurisdictional decisions, consent awards, and emergency orders. As an assessment to help readers determine which arbitral decisions should be qualified as awards, this book is sure to become an international reference for arbitrators, practitioners at global law firms, companies doing transnational business, interested academics, and international arbitration centres in emerging markets.

The Public Policy Exception under the New York Convention: History, Interpretation, and Application describes in detail the drafting history of the public policy exception of Art. V (2) (b) of the New York Convention in order to determine the purpose the signatory states wanted to achieve with this clause. The book also explains how this clause is applied by the courts in many economically relevant states, and especially in Brazil, Russia, India, and China. In September 2012, the Indian Supreme Court, in a case entitled Bharat Aluminium Co. v. Kaiser Aluminium Technical Service, Inc., announced a long expected decision practically reversing the judgments of Bhatia International and Venture Global and holding that Indian Courts are not permitted to set aside foreign arbitral awards. In this Revised Edition, the author explains and explores the reasoning of the Indian Supreme Court in this landmark decision and discusses the practical implications and consequences. Public Policy Exception under the New York Convention: History, Interpretation, and Application is of importance for all internationally active companies as well as for lawyers and courts. The book aids lawyers and companies in drafting arbitration clauses and in enforcing foreign arbitral awards. Often, judgments will not be enforced abroad; this is especially true with respect to an enforcement of foreign judgments in the BRIC countries. Therefore, internationally active companies and their advisors need guidance if and where foreign arbitral awards in their favor will be enforced abroad.

Reaching past the secrecy so often met in arbitration, the second edition of this commentary explains clearly and fully the workings of the UNCITRAL Rules of Arbitral Procedure recommended for use in 1976 by the United Nations. This new edition fully takes account of the revised Rules adopted in 2010 while maintaining coverage of the original Rules where these remain relevant. The differences between the old and the new Rules are clearly indicated and explained. Pulling together difficult to obtain sources from the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal, arbitrations under Chapter 11 of the North American Free Trade Agreement, and ad hoc arbitrations, it illuminates the shape the UNCITRAL Rules take in practice. The authors cogently critique that practice in the light of the negotiating history of the rules and solutions adopted by the other major private rules of arbitral procedure. To aid the specialist in the field, the practice of these various tribunals is extensively extracted and reproduced. Rich both in its analysis and sources, this text is indispensable for those working in or studying international arbitration.

The UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration was adopted in 1985 and amended in 2006. More than 65 countries have since revised their laws on international commercial arbitration by reference to the Model Law. The goal of the Model Law - coupled with the New York Convention of 1958 on the recognition and the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards - was to contribute to the establishment of a unified legal framework for the fair and efficient settlement of disputes arising in international commercial relations. This book - by the Association for International Arbitration (AIA) - measures the degree of unification which the Model Law has achieved and its contribution to the development of legal thinking on international arbitration during the past 25 years.

In intemational arbitration, as in any other system of adjudication, finality of the decision must be balanced against the need to ensure that justice has been administered fairly. Because finality is one of its essential features, international arbitration has reached an equilibrium which guarantees to the parties a decision that cannot be appealed, while allowing a review of arbitral awards on limited grounds. The review of international arbitral awards was the topic of the inaugural IAI forum, on the occasion of which 50 prominent academics, judges, arbitrators and practitioners active in the field of international arbitration convened in the legendary Clos de Vougeot, in the heart of Burgundy for a two-day retreat. The presentations were followed by extensive discussion, the transcript of which is included in the present volume. The International Arbitration Institute (IAI) was established in Paris with the purpose of promoting communication and exchanges on current international arbitration issues. It now includes over 600 members residing in 44 countries. For further detail, see
