A Guide to the ICDR International Arbitration Rules (2d ed.) by Martin F. Gusy & James M. Hosking, Oxford University Press, 2019. PP. 470, Hardcover.

Eight years since the publication of its first edition, A Guide to the ICDR International Arbitration Rules (“Guide”), provides an updated review of the interpretation of the ICDR International Arbitration Rules (“ICDR Rules”). As the Guide elaborates, since its inception in 1991, the International Arbitration Rules evolved through various revisions and ultimately culminated in the 2014 amendments, which were made with the “primary objective of . . . improv[ing] the speed and cost-effectiveness of ICDR arbitration proceedings.”  The fact that the “the 2014 amendments [were] of considerably greater scale than prior amendments” makes this Second Edition an essential read.
