This concise book introduces the reader to the law and practice of international commercial arbitration. International arbitration, by its nature, is a complex field due to its scope of geographic application and by reason of the complex issues capable of arising from the intersection of procedural and substantive law. Alongside international commercial arbitration, consideration is given to investment arbitration, the growth of which has been nothing short of phenomenal.
Written by three practitioners who also teach, this book addresses matters of procedure, contract, jurisdiction, and enforcement in a manner designed to facilitate easy comprehension.
The book is marked by a fresh approach in a well-ploughed field. The authors identify key propositions, explicate each in a one-page essay, and illustrate certain aspects of the proposition in a facing page. Written for students, in-house and government counsel, and practising lawyers, the book seeks to explain matters in a practical way, using examples of legislation and procedural rules from a number of jurisdictions.
‘The authors know not only what they are talking about and how to make it accessible, but also bring the topic up to date in light of lessons learned from the reality of practical application.’ From the Foreword by Professor Jan Paulsson
