The School of International Arbitration of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London celebrated its 30th anniversary in April 2015 with a major conference featuring presentations by 35 international arbitration practitioners and scholars from many countries representing a variety of legal systems.
This volume has emerged from that conference. What is striking is not only the range and diversity of the topics examined but also the emergence of new subjects for examination, demonstrating that arbitration law and practice do not stand still but are constantly evolving.
The issues and topics covered include the following:-
- Evolution of case law and practice in international arbitration;
- The concept and autonomy of arbitral award;
- Parties in international arbitration;
- Parallel proceedings in international arbitration;
- Court review of arbitration awards;
- Geographic expansion of international arbitration;
- Counsel regulation and conflicts disclosures;
- The use of technology in international arbitration;
- Teaching and research in international arbitration.
This superbly organised and edited volume, like earlier conference volumes from the School of International Arbitration, is sure to be welcomed and acclaimed, and like them will prove of lasting value.
