Digest of NY Convention Case Law Launched

A new, online searchable digest of case law relating to the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (“the Convention”) was launched July 2, 2012.  Created jointly by   UNCITRAL, the U.S. law firm Shearman and Sterling LLP, and Columbia Law School, and available at www.newyorkconvention1958.org ,  the digest pulls together case law relating to the application and interpretation of the Convention from fifteen different jurisdictions, including Canada, the U.S., the U.K., India, the People’s Republic of China, the Russian Federation and Brazil.   More jurisdictions may be added later.   The cases are presented as summaries focusing on the court’s decision as to the application and/or interpretation of the  Convention, with a link to the whole decision, although it appears summaries have not yet been prepared for all decisions.   At this point the digest contains over 700 cases.  This digest, called the New York Convention Guide, is  a welcome addition to the research resources for international arbitration.
