The introduction of the Arbitration Act 2010 has radically changed existing arbitration law and practice in Ireland.  Arbitration Act 2010 and Model Law: A Commentary provides a detailed and concise, section-by-section, commentary on the Arbitration Act 2010 and the UNCITRAL Model Law with the aim of setting out the current law and practice governing arbitration in Ireland.

In this accessible work, each provision is reproduced in full with detailed commentary providing the reader with an appreciation of the meaning and effect of each provision.  The work aims to consider all materials that may be helpful to a future Irish court called upon to interpret the provisions of the Arbitration Act 2010 including not only Irish materials, but also international materials such as case-law, the UNCITRAL travaux préparatoires and secondary materials from leading commentators.
