International Arbitration Law Toolbox
The Peace Palace, The Hague, NL, and the Seal of the Permanent Court of Arbitration
Welcome to the LexisNexis International Arbitration Law Toolbox. This toolbox brings you the latest arbitral rules, related laws, select decisions, and legal analysis on international arbitration along with links to the principal international arbitral tribunals. In addition to the cutting edge Mealey’s Reports and in-depth treatment of arbitration in International Exporting Agreements and Doing Business in the United Kingdom, we also offer emerging issue analysis from some of the leading practitioners in the field of international arbitration.
PRACTICE NOTE: Since arbitration is a voluntary process usually agreed to as part of a commercial contract, it is a private matter before a private arbitral panel; not being a matter brought before a public body or state court, it remains private and hence many arbitral decisions are not publicly available or made available by publication. It should be noted that arbitrators in general are not bound by prior decisions or precedent, so that citation of prior decisions is merely persuasive.
SPECIAL ALERT : LexisNexis has recently made a quantum leap in providing you with the latest International Arbitration content available on line anywhere. We have introduced a new International Arbitration legal topic tab on lexis.com where you will have access to all your favorite Juris Publishing titles on International Arbitration as well as LexisNexis' latest books and other content on this growing field of legal practice. And be sure to examine the sage advice and discussion of trends across the various arbitral tribunals and rules, and across different industries, to be found in LexisNexis' most recent release:
