International Arbitration in Korea provides a comprehensive introduction to more than 140 arbitral cases and commentaries in Korea and introduces the arbitration community to the jurisprudence and scholarship of this underappreciated but well developed jurisdiction. The book encompasses all the major current and historical arbitration cases in Korea alongside practical and scholarly commentary. In keeping with the growth of international arbitration in Asia, Korea is emerging as an alternative centre of arbitration and the number of international arbitration cases involving Korean parties is on the increase. The Korean Commercial Arbitration Board (KCAB) has reported growth in the number of international arbitrations seated in the region and South Korea's Arbitration Act, as well as KCAB's own International Rules, are both due to be revised in 2015. International Arbitration in Korea is both the first book in English to cover the most significant arbitration cases in Korea and the first to take account of these latest amendments. The book is an essential international arbitration resource and reference that will be attractive to academics, arbitrators, jurists, students, practitioners, in-house counsel, and researchers.
The book is an analysis of commercial arbitration law and practice in South Korea, presenting in an accessible, yet comprehensive manner, the country’s arbitration law, the major Korean arbitration institution and its rules, relevant court rulings, etc. It includes a historical and legal overview and discussion of the rise and breadth of the use of commercial arbitration in Korea. Arbitration Law of Korea: Practice and Procedure covers all of the essential topics, including arbitration agreements, arbitral tribunals, arbitral awards, arbitration procedures, enforcement of awards, supportive roles played by the courts, etc. Arbitration Law of Korea: Practice and Procedure is up-to-date with recent amendments to the rules of the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board and also contains: (1) a new and improved, complete translation of the Arbitration Act and (2) both Korean and English versions of the 2011 amendments to the arbitration rules of the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board.
The International Arbitration Review, edited by James H Carter of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, provides an analytical review of what has occurred in each of the important arbitration jurisdictions during the past year, capturing recent developments and putting them in the context of the jurisdiction's legal arbitration structure and selecting the most important matters for comment.

This is the seventh edition of the Baker & McKenzie International Arbitration Yearbook, an annual series established by the Firm in 2007. This collection of articles is comprised of reports in key jurisdictions around the globe on arbitration. Leading lawyers of the Firm’s International Arbitration Practice Group, a division of the Firm’s Global Dispute Resolution Practice Group, report on recent developments in national laws relating to arbitration and address current arbitral trends and tendencies in the jurisdictions in which they practice. This Yearbook highlights the more important recent developments in international arbitration, without aspiring to be an exhaustive case reporter or a text-book to arbitration in the broad sense. This volume will prove a useful tool for those contemplating and using arbitration to resolve international business disputes.
Asia has witnessed an extraordinary growth in the use of international arbitration in the past two decades. Arbitration in Asia is an ideal reference to guide practitioners and business people in the proper selection of a suitable arbitral seat or jurisdiction in Asia. The book includes substantive chapters reflecting detailed commentary and analysis on 18 Asian jurisdictions from the area's leading arbitration practitioners and experts. The materials in this looseleaf volume provide a practical reference guide and resource tool for the law and practice of international commercial arbitration in Asia.
The essays in this volume, prepared by a virtual “who’s who” of the leading arbitrators in Asia, present a unique insight into arbitration practices and procedures in the world’s largest and fastest growing region. This book offers thoughtful advice and insights into the world of international arbitration in Asia from some of the most prominent and experienced international arbitrators in the world. The contributors are arbitrators from Brunei Darussalam, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, United Kingdom and the USA. The contributors offer insights and advice on the way in which international arbitrations are carried out from the point of view of arbitrators reading pleadings and memorials and listening to witnesses and hearing arguments. The authors' discussions are intended to be thoughtful, insightful and useful - and perhaps, occasionally, iconoclastic. There may be instances in which the authors disagree with one another on certain points, for there are often many routes that can be taken to achieve a result. The book will be useful not only to persons who may serve as arbitrators in international arbitral proceedings but also to those who may, in their position as advocates, wish to persuade persons - including, perhaps, the authors.
Most books on international commercial arbitration approach the subject through legal theory supported by anecdotal evidence. This remarkable book is distinguished by its focus on the application of quantitative empirical research to the study of international arbitration. It collects, together with commentary, the existing empirical literature on the subject, and also presents several studies published here for the first time. Beginning with a basic overview of the methods of empirical research (surveys, observational studies, experimental studies), the book goes on to reprint the existing empirical studies under six headings: why parties agree to arbitrate; arbitration clauses; arbitral procedures; arbitrator selection; rules of decision and applicable law; and, arbitration awards. Written in an easily accessible, non-technical manner, Towards a Science of International Arbitration provides the starting point for future empirical research on international arbitration by collecting the existing empirical literature in one place and by suggesting possible topics for research. It will be of inestimable value to lawyers and others involved in international dispute resolution, whether as arbitrators, parties, party representatives, or in-house counsel, as well as to academics interested in methods of resolving disputes in international commerce.
ICCA's Congress Series No. 12, reflecting the contributions of numerous renown arbitration experts to the 2004 ICCA Beijing Conference, commences with an overview of the current international arbitration regime in China and Hong Kong, noting both the progress that has been achieved and the work that remains to be done there. The remainder of the volume comprises two sets of papers on contemporary substantive and procedural issues in international commercial arbitration. The first set contains in-depth reports on the topical subjects of arbitration of foreign investment disputes, the granting of provisional or interim measures with respect to arbitration and the enforceability of awards, supplemented by commentary from the point of view of various specializations and regions. The second, also using the format of reports and commentary, addresses modalities of conciliation and settlement in relation to arbitration, including various non-binding (ADR) processes, issues (drafting step clauses and confidentiality) in integrated dispute resolution systems, which may combine conciliation and arbitration, and the role of arbitrators as settlement facilitators.
Volume 19 of the Congress Series contains the proceedings of ICCA's 2016 Mauritius Congress, the first ICCA Congress held in Africa. In this volume, renowned practitioners, scholars and jurists from the region and around the world explore the contribution of arbitration to the rule of law and economic development; the conformity of arbitration with international standards of due process and the rule of law; and the benefits and challenges of arbitration in Africa. Topical issues of interest for practitioners, academics and students of arbitration - in the region and internationally - include: • Due process issues in constituting the arbitral tribunal and challenging its members • Interim measures issued by arbitral tribunals and domestic courts • Burden, standard and types of proof in the corruption defence • What to do (and what to avoid doing) to prepare a persuasive case • Do post-award remedies ensure conformity of the arbitral process with the rule of law? • Do rules and guidelines properly regulate the conduct of arbitration? • The interface between domestic courts and arbitral tribunals • What are appropriate remedies for findings of illegality in investment arbitration? • The effect of foreign national court judgments relating to the arbitral award • What does the future hold for investment arbitration in Africa and beyond?
