The chapters of this volume represent the majority of Professor Carbonneau’s scholarly writings on the subject of international commercial arbitration. They reflect his interest over the course of thirty years of law-teaching in international litigation, comparative law, and-of course - international arbitration. Some of the chapters are of a recent vintage, while others were written a decade or two ago. Whatever their date of production, the chapters have a continuing professional interest. Each addresses some of the major issues of trans-border arbitration law. A number of chapters emphasize the importance of courts in developing and maintaining a legal culture that is hospitable to arbitration. The work of the courts has been instrumental to the reception of arbitration in the United States and in several European jurisdictions. The courts can “make or break” arbitration by upholding arbitration agreements and enforcing arbitral awards. Other chapters underscore that arbitration can operate as a complete legal system. It not only provides workable trial procedures, but arbitrators can also create law in their rulings. With the addition of an internal arbitral appellate mechanism, arbitrations can function with almost absolute independence. The world law on arbitrations seems to favor the “a-national” and “a-juridical” operation of the arbitral process. A few of the chapters recognize that arbitration is being increasingly employed to resolve political or mixed political and commercial disputes. Investment arbitration and BITs are the most recent expression of this development; it had been apparent in WTO and NAFTA dispute resolution. The Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal presented the first great occasion for assessing the vocation of arbitration in a mixed dispute situation. While arbitration has made significant inroads in this area, political sovereignty remains resistant to the imposition of limitations. In many less visible “political” cases, determinations are nonetheless made and rendered enforceable. The concluding chapters address more specific developments in the field of ICA. A number of cases point to the strong, perhaps overweening, support of the judiciary for arbitration. The courts in some jurisdictions support arbitration unequivocally and are bent upon a single outcome no matter the impact on doctrine. Lawyer presence in the arbitral process has lead to increased formalization in some proceedings. The “judicialization” of arbitration tilts the process toward the protection of rights and hinders its ability to function effectively and reach finality. Lawyers can readily misunderstand and undermine the gravamen of arbitration. The concluding chapters also establish that the UK Arbitration Act 1996 is one of the world’s outstanding arbitration statutes. It rivals and bests the UNCITRAL Model Law on ICA and is the equal of the French codified law on arbitration. Finally, the express text of the New York Arbitration Convention appears to have been altered significantly by court practice. The possible limitations of national law have been neutralized and the provisions of the Convention articulate a truly trans-border regulation of the enforcement of awards. In sum, the chapters in this book reflect the author's lifetime work in the area of international arbitration and are required reading for all those practicing in the field- law students, arbitrators, academics and practicing lawyers.

This is the leading text on shipbuilding and marine construction, already widely used on a global basis by shipowners, shipbuilders and their commercial and legal advisers. It is now ten years since the last edition and much has changed in the world of shipbuilding since then, particularly in the period since 2008 which has seen numerous attempts by owners to renegotiate the prices and/or delivery dates of tonnage and an enormous increase in the level of “vessel rejection” and cancellation disputes. The Law of Shipbuilding Contracts examines the principles of English contract law as these apply to shipbuilding. This edition comments in detail upon the Shipbuilders’ Association of Japan Form but now contrasts this with the NEWBUILDCON from BIMCO in 2007 and the China Maritime Arbitration Commission Forms from 2011 where these are significantly different. It also includes sections dealing with agreements ancillary to the shipbuilding contract and conversion contracts. Overview of book: Since the last edition in 2002, China has become a major global exporter of newbuildings and new BIMCO shipbuilding contract form has been published. Although retaining the original format of commentary on the Japanese (SAJ) standard form shipbuilding contract, the new edition contrasts this with the BIMCO form and the recently published China Maritime Arbitration Commission (CMAC) form in order to provide a broad ranging analysis of this complex subject. The book details the principles of English contract law as these apply to international shipbuilding. It will, as in the previous editions, also include sections dealing with the guarantees and other agreements which support the shipbuilding contract and with ship conversion contracts Essential reading for: - Purchasers and charterers of newbuilding tonnage - Shipbuilders and offshore construction yards - Lawyers and insurers working in the maritime and offshore oil and gas sectors - Banks and other finance providers

"There should not be a practitioner who does not have a copy ... highly recommended." —Arbitration When first published, The Arbitration Act 1996: A Commentary was described by Lord Bingham as "intensely practical and admirably user-friendly". It remains the most readable, useful, practical and user-friendly guide to the Arbitration Act 1996. The courts – particularly the Commercial and the Technology & Construction Courts – continue to grapple with many questions relating to the Act, with many judgments reported since the previous edition was published. While many of these do not add to the wisdom on this legislation, for the fifth edition the authors have considered some 330 new cases, resulting in extensive changes throughout much of the commentary. Many of the cases going to court concern challenges to awards and as a result the commentary on the relevant sections of the Act (ss. 67, 68, 70 and 72) has been subject to very substantial revision indeed. The details of all of these changes are of great importance to practitioners, whether lawyers or arbitrators. In addition there have been some significant changes to the Model Law since publication of the previous edition, which are fully documented and commented upon. Alterations to the CPR, the new UNCITRAL Rules (2010), the new ICC Rules (2012) and the new ICE Arbitration Procedure (2010) are also covered. Written by three practising arbitrators, the fifth edition continues to be the essential handbook for all concerned with English arbitration.

The Rotterdam Rules represent the most comprehensive overhaul of the law of carriage of goods by sea in more than fifty years. To coincide with the signing ceremony, six members of the Institute of Maritime Law have written a detailed commentary on the Rules. The Rotterdam Rules: A Practical Annotation examines the text of the Rules, all ninety-six articles of the new Convention, and compares them to the text of the Hague-Visby Rules, the instrument currently covering most bills of lading. The authors have also examined the judgments in cases decided in the English Courts under the Carriage of Goods by Sea Acts of 1971 and 1992 and have indicated whether these cases would be decided differently under the new Rotterdam Rules.
