The UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration has been a great success in harmonizing the law of arbitration around the world. Several dozen countries have either adopted the law or amended their own laws to be in conformity with it. The fact that the law is the same in so many countries allows courts from each country to benefit from the interpretation of the Model Law provisions in many countries.
This book, written by distinguished arbitration practitioners, is a must for every international arbitration practitioner. The authors have compiled decisions applying the Model Law from most Model Law jurisdictions, and they have organized them in order to provide easy reference. The cases are organized by section of the Model law, with the cases applying that section from multiple jurisdictions summarized together. Each summary includes a statement of the holding of the case, a broader summary of the facts and the ruling, and case citations. This compilation will allow arbitration counsel to compare and to readily use rulings under each Model Law section from multiple jurisdictions.
