The Evolution of International Arbitration (Not Offered in AY2021-2022)
Last Updated Date:   1 June 2021

5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
The module has three distinctive features. First, it compares international commercial arbitration (ICA) international investment arbitration (ISA). Second, it focuses on the evolution of arbitration, in particular, on the development of the procedures and substantive law that have gradually enabled arbitration to become a meaningfully autonomous legal system. Third, it surveys a variety of explanations for why the arbitral order has evolved as it has - into a more "judicial-like" legal order - focusing on the role of arbitral centres, state regulatory competition, and the reasoning of tribunals in their awards.
