    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Comments on proposed changes to the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules 1976 submitted by the UNCITRAL Working Group II in February 2010 to bring about necessary modernisation. Considers the prevalence over the Rules of mandatory arbitral rules and other applicable laws, and highlights potential problems for parties who may not realise that certain provisions are unenforceable in some jurisdictions. Discusses examples of how parties could be misled by the revised Rules' mechanisms for enhanced flexibility, in respect of the law applicable to the merits of the dispute and the effects of the arbitral award.
