This title is written primarily for practising lawyers, arbitrators and judges. It will also provide an invaluable resource for students of arbitration. Since New Zealand is an UNCITRAL Model Law jurisdiction it will also be of interest to arbitration specialists in other Model Law countries, especially those in the Asia-Pacific region.

The authors bring to this task extensive practical and theoretical knowledge of both domestic and international arbitration.
