The most readable, useful, practical and user-friendly guide to the Arbitration Act 1996.

The Arbitration Act 1996 is a section by section commentary on the Act, which Lord Bingham described as “intensely practical and admirably user-friendly” when it was first published. The fifth edition has been updated by considering in excess of 300 new cases decided since publication of the 4th edition. In addition there have been some significant changes to the Model Law since publication of the previous edition, (which take it into areas where UK arbitration does not go), and these changes are documented, updated and commented upon. In previous editions, the authors have limited themselves to mentioning states conclusively declared to be parties to the New York Convention by Order in Council. This tends to follow some way behind the current position, however, so a more comprehensive coverage of states which are parties to the New York Convention is included. The result is a thorough update, providing the most readable and useful guide to the Act.
