Choice of Law in International Commercial Arbitration

Synopsis

International commercial arbitration poses unique challenges to the choice of law. Laws relating to the arbitration agreement, arbitral procedure, and the merits of a dispute must all be applied in light of vital national interests and transnational public policy. State contracts pose additional problems. The legislative, judicial, and arbitral practices in major jurisdictions are analyzed to give the reader a view of the major trends in international commercial arbitration. Practitioners in international commercial arbitration, international lawyers interested in dispute resolution, and students of international commercial law and the conflict of laws will find this book of special interest.
