We are pleased to announce that the latest edition of the Baker McKenzie International Arbitration Yearbook is now available.

This new edition reviews important developments in arbitration over the past year across 47 jurisdictions, including:

  • The effects of COVID-19 on international arbitration;
  • New arbitral rules from major institutions such as the LCIA and ICC;
  • The increasing use of artificial intelligence and technology in arbitration; and
  • the ongoing uncertainty around the future of intra-EU BITs following the European Court of Justice’s decision in Achmea.

In recognition of both our clients’ preferences for soft copy material and our commitment to sustainability, we are continuing the practice started last year of publishing the Yearbook exclusively in electronic format, via our Global Arbitration News blog, rather than in hard copy. This innovative format also allows us to add to the Yearbook throughout the year to reflect the latest developments.

You can access the latest edition of the International Arbitration Yearbook here or by hovering your cursor over the “International Arbitration Yearbook” menu, which appears at the top of every page on GAN, and selecting “2020-2021 Edition.”
