The Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010 has placed Scotland at the forefront of modern arbitration law and procedure.

The Act improves the range of options for domestic dispute resolution and has given Scotland the chance to establish itself as a centre for cross-border and international arbitration.

The Scottish Arbitration Handbook is an accessible and practical guide to the new law. It combines annotation of the 2010 Act and the new procedural rules with informed commentary on how the legislation is likely to affect the conduct of arbitration. The authors draw on their experience in practice to address the issues that commonly arise during the arbitration process.

Coverage includes:

  • Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010, annotated
  • Scottish Arbitration Rules, annotated
  • new procedural rules contained in the Rules of Court
  • analysis of the non-mandatory rules
  • sample arbitration clauses or agreements

Under the 2010 Act, arbitration in Scotland is a flexible, confidential, speedy and costeffective procedure for the resolution of disputes. The Scottish Arbitration Handbook provides an invaluable source of information and guidance to all those considering arbitration in Scotland.
