Sir Bernard Rix, a full time arbitrator at 20 Essex Street and recently retired Lord Justice of Appeal, has contributed a chapter on international arbitration to the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators’ ‘Liber Amicorum: Defining Issues in International Arbitration’ celebrating 100 years of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
Sir Bernard Rix’s chapter is on “Judicial review of the merits of arbitration awards under English law”, looking at this question from a historical perspective. He joins, as described by Professor Derek Roebuck, “a constellation of the brightest stars in the firmament of international commercial arbitration.” These stars include well-known names in the field such as Karl-Heinz Böckstiegel, Neil Kaplan and Doug Jones.
20 Essex Street member, Michael Collett QC, is one of those to have reviewed the collection of essays, intended as expert guidance on recent developments and current issues in this burgeoning discipline. He states: “This is a rich collection of contributions on all aspects of international arbitration from authors pre-eminent in the field. It is a worthy celebration of CIArb's Centenary.
The book will be available to purchase in May of 2016.
