With a worldwide readership, this publication is an essential resource for practice, study and training.
The issue features a historical study by Florian Grisel on the emergence of legal reasoning in ICC Arbitral Awards. A review of ICC Expert Services by James Nicholson and Matthias Cazier-Darmois also appears in the publication, marking the launch of the 2015 ICC Expert Rules which set out new parameters for using experts and neutrals to help resolve cross-border disputes.
Introducing the publication, Andrea Carlevaris, Secretary General of the ICC International Court of Arbitration and Director of ICC Dispute Resolution Services said: “The need for experts in arbitral proceedings, and indeed in business in general, has grown with the increasing technicality, specialization and multiculturality of economic activity. Recognizing this trend, ICC has just completed a revision of its rules governing the proposal and appointment of experts and the administration of expert proceedings.
“The relevance of specialized knowledge is illustrated in several of the extracts from ICC arbitral awards that are published in this issue of the Bulletin, which were rendered in disputes relating to the exploration, production and sale of oil and gas in the MENA region,” Mr Carlevaris added. The awards are accompanied by a commentary from industry specialist and arbitrator, A. Timothy Martin.
Since its creation in 1923, the International Court of Arbitration has worked to increase knowledge and understanding of arbitration. The Court’s Bulletin has contributed significantly to achieving this goal. Initially published in print only, it became available online in 2008 as part of the ICC Dispute Resolution Library, a vast resource of essential ICC publications and documents.
The need for experts in arbitral proceedings, and indeed in business in general, has grown with the increasing technicality, specialization and multiculturality of economic activity.
ICC will this year launch a new biannual periodical, the ICC Dispute Resolution Bulletin, which will succeed the ICC International Court of Arbitration Bulletin. The new Bulletin will be more focused on ICC procedures than its predecessor, with over 100 pages of extracts from ICC arbitral awards in each issue raising interesting issues for the practice of ICC arbitration.
The Bulletin is available in English, French and Spanish, in print and e-format. It is also possible to download individual e-chapters rather than the complete issue.
