Index to 'CLOUT'* case abstracts which relate to Model Arbitration Law (MAL) cases, by reference to which articles of the MAL the cases refer to.
 
M.J. Chapman, 1999.
(updated October 2003)





The UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration (the 'MAL') consists of thirty-six articles divided into eight chapters. The heading of each article is given in the tables below.
Those articles, paragraphs of articles, or sub-paragraphs that have case law specifically associated with them are shown underlined. 'Clicking' on the link will take you to a list of cases, and from there to individual abstracts.
Please NOTE that a case that is relevant to a, for example, sub-paragraph only, will not be relisted with other cases that apply more generally to the whole article, and so it will be necessary to look at all links within that article to see all cited cases.
