This is the 2006 volume of the Arbitration Law Reports and Review series, which makes full texts as judgements on the arbitration law of England, Wales and Northern Ireland available in a single publication on an annual basis. Yearly volumes include a comprehensive collection of arbitration-related judicial decisions for the relevant calender year, with back volumes in preparation to cover each year since entry into force of the Arbitration Act 1996. The case law is cross-referenced and each case is prefaced by a head note of keywords, a concise summary of the issues, the holding andjudicial comments obiter plus lists of cases, arbitration rules and legislation referred to. Each volume contains the Editor's analytical review of developments during the year, offering comment on decisions, grouping cases together under thematic headings to identify trends and developments, and integrating discussion of relevant non-arbitration related cases (contract interpretation,human rights, adjudication, expert determination, mediation, procedural fairness, duties to give reason and so on). The review also draws attention to comparative developments abroad, in particular to UNCITRAL Model Law jurisdictions applying similar legislative provisions.
