The popularity of arbitration has grown significantly during recent years. With the introduction of the 1996 Arbitration Act, which restated much of the old law as well as developing new provisions, there now exists one consolidated source of the law relating to arbitration.
Well established as the ideal introductory text to the law of arbitration in England and Wales, as well as providing a useful comparison with Scotland, this edition of Gill: The Law of Arbitration
has been completely revised and updated to include the new Act. The book explains the law briefly and clearly, and contains important statutory instruments as appendices.
Topics covered include:
* The nature of an arbitration and the arbitration agreement
* Arbitrators and umpires
* Procedures, evidence and costs
* The making of an award
* Aspects of international arbitration
