Although the market for information on international arbitration is growing increasingly competitive, until now there has been a singular lack of a short, direct guide of manageable size that focuses on answering the essential questions that inevitably arise.

The reality of international arbitration practice is that practitioners often work in an array of jurisdictions, under differing rules and different conventions. Therefore, rather than focusing on the rules of a particular institution, a particular country, or a particular convention, the article-by-article commentary in Concise International Arbitration offers the reader a swift understanding of all provisions of the leading arbitration instruments.

Concise International Arbitration is part of Kluwer Law International’s Concise series. These publications have proven enormously valuable to busy practitioners who require a succinct, accessible and authoritative commentary on the most commonly-used instruments, unencumbered by dense legal argument.

Each book in the series breaks down the relevant texts by article and by each paragraph of the article, followed by one or more notes. The intention is to give the reader a rapid appreciation of the meaning and effect of each provision and to point in the right direction should further information (e.g., case law) be needed.

In this book, key practitioners offer clear, to-the-point commentary on the following arbitral instruments:-

  • New York Convention;
  • ICSID Convention;
  • UNCITRAL Rules;
  • ICSID Rules;
  • ICC Rules;
  • LCIA Rules;
  • AAA-ICDR Rules;
  • CIETAC Rules;
  • UNCITRAL Model Law;
  • Chinese Arbitration Law 1994;
  • English Arbitration Act 1996;
  • French Code of Civil Procedure 1976; and
  • Swiss Private International Law Act 1989.
As a reliable, quick-reference tool in situations where the reader is not closely familiar with, or needs to be reminded of the effect of a particular legal provision and how it relates to other provisions, Concise International Arbitration is unmatched. It will be greatly appreciated by courts, arbitrators, counsel to arbitration, attorneys, in-house lawyers, arbitration institutions, and academics.
