The Fourteenth Annual Review of the Arbitration Act 1996:
The State of English Law on the Enforc

16th March 2011

What is this event about?

The Arbitration Act 1996 was enacted to bring English arbitration law in line with international standards. To what extent has this been achieved? To what extent are local particularisms still operative setting England apart from other major arbitration venues? Are new principles introduced by the Arbitration Act 1996 being applied in accordance with accepted international norms or have they been limited by judicial reference to English domestic law and practice? Should international arbitration be governed by national law alone?
