Law, Practice and Procedure of Arbitration 2nd Edition by Datuk Professor Sundra Rajoo [Lexis Nexis Edition, 2016]
The first edition was a comprehensive and thoroughly researched legal text on the law, practice and procedure of arbitration in Malaysia. It was published in year 2003 when the now repealed Arbitration Act 1952 was still in force. The Arbitration Act 1952 was subsequently repealed and replaced by the Arbitration Act 2005 which came into operation on 15 March 2006 and subsequently, amended in2011.
The provisions of the Arbitration Act 2005 are substantially modeled upon the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration, which arbitration model law has since been adopted by over 80 countries around the world. Notwithstanding that the Arbitration Act 1952 has been repealed, the first edition remained an authoritative text for both legal practitioners and judges in Malaysia and served as a useful reference text, especially on areas which are deemed as still relevant for interpreting the relevant provisions in the Arbitration Act 2005.
In this second edition, Datuk Professor Sundra Rajoo has extensively expanded and updated his work in the first edition to cover new developments brought about by the new arbitration regime based on the Arbitration Act 2005 (Amended 2011), and subsequent changes made thereto. It provides a thorough, detailed guide on the law, practice and procedure in Malaysia, distilled from the Learned Author’s careful and comprehensive analysis of case law from both Malaysia and other jurisdictions, which have adopted the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration.
Amongst the areas covered include the General Framework on Arbitration, Conduct of the Arbitral Proceedings, Jurisdiction of the Arbitral Tribunal, Role of National Courts, Awards & Costs, Challenge & Enforcement of Awards, Arbitration in Malaysia & KLRCA, Arbitration Law Reform, Specialty Arbitration Regimes like Investment Treaty Arbitration, Construction Adjudication, Sports Arbitration, Maritime Arbitration. Each topic draws on current and updated examples of case law, soft law and practical experience from Malaysian and other jurisdictions applying the UNCITRAL Model Law.
With the immensely in-depth research and examination on the legal principles and authorities on arbitration law and practice developed in Malaysia and other jurisdictions, this second edition is undoubtedly an invaluable guide to both domestic and international readers.
