Subjects: The UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration was adopted in 1985 and amended in 2006. More than 65 countries have since revised their laws on international commercial arbitration by reference to the Model Law. The goal of the Model Law was to contribute, coupled with the New York Convention of 1958 on the recognition and the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards, to the establishment of a unified legal framework for the fair and efficient settlement of disputes arising in international commercial relations. The purpose of the conference was to measure the degree of unification which the Model Law has achieved and its contribution to the development of legal thinking on international arbitration in the past 25 years.
The AIA was proud to welcome its most internationally diverse list of guests and presenters ever to the exciting one-day event. The goal of the conference, as stated from the outset, was to measure the degree of unification that the Model Law has achieved and its contribution to the development of legal thinking on international arbitration in the past 25 years. In his introduction, Mr. Bertrand noted the variety of reasons the UNCITRAL Model Law is implemented by differing countries, and thus the difficulty in measuring its relative success. His musing on this subject opened the room for debate on the merits of harmonization, the interpretation of international law, and whether the unification of countries with varying political, social, and legal systems is really feasible. Please see the conference program for a list of the panel topics.
