ICC Dossiers Volume 12

The choice of jurisdiction is one of the most important provisions of a contract. The jurisdiction clause determines the national Court, and its rules of conflict, or the arbitral tribunal, whose role will be to give effect to the partiesand#8217; agreement on the substance and on the applicable law. Written by arbitrators, academics and practitioners, this dossier addresses the multiple challenges facing the jurisdiction clause through an expert in-depth comparison of syndromes and proposed solutions in both arbitration and court proceedings.

Are asymmetrical jurisdiction clauses enforceable? What is the proper law for the arbitration clause? What occurs in countries where the validity of the arbitration agreement is determined pursuant to a substantive approach rather than one of conflict of laws? Is there a risk that The Hague Convention on choice of court agreements will create a conflict with the current substantive law and increase ex ante uncertainty?

These challenging questions and many others in relation to the effectiveness of jurisdictional choices are covered in this Dossier. An indispensable read for those dealing with international contracts or involved in international arbitration.

The ICC Institute of World Business Law brings together the finest legal minds to strengthen links between international business practitioners and the legal profession. The Instituteand#8217;s and#8216;Dossiersand#8217; is a series that has gained international prestige. These Dossiers are the outcome of the Instituteand#8217;s annual meetings, where experts from around the globe come together to discuss salient issues of international commercial law and arbitration.
