This publication contains a presentation of case law rendered in jurisdictions having enacted the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration. In light of the large number of cases collected in CLOUT, the Commission requested a tool specifically designed to present selected information on the interpretation and application of the Model Law in a clear, concise and objective manner. This request originated the UNCITRAL 2012 Digest of Case Law on the Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration.
The purpose of the digest is to assist in the dissemination of information on the Model Law and further promote its adoption as well as its uniform interpretation and application. In addition, the digest is meant to help judges, Government officials, arbitrators, practitioners and academics use more efficiently the case law relating to that UNCITRAL text. Information is presented in a format based on chapters corresponding to articles of the Model Law; each chapter contains a synopsis of the relevant case law, highlighting common views and reporting divergent approaches.
