About the book

Authoritative and updated, the second edition of The International Arbitration Act 1974: A Commentary is a detailed, analytical text providing guidance on the interpretation of key international arbitration legislation. Significantly, it also includes a detailed commentary on the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration and the Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes between States and Nationals of Other States.

This text is the result of a fruitful collaboration between the co-authors, both of whom are practitioners and experts in this area of law. The commentary follows the structure of the International Arbitration Act 1974 (Cth), making this an easy reference tool for practitioners and researchers. An extensive provision by provision commentary on the Act is provided, with extensive references to both relevant Australian case law and important judicial consideration from foreign jurisdictions. The legislative history of each provision is clearly set out, enabling readers to develop an in-depth understanding of the law.
