Commercial Arbitration in the Arab Middle East

Shari'a, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt (Second Edition)

This second edition has been completely revised and updated to offer a fully modern account of domestic commercial arbitration practice in the Middle East. The first part of the book dealing with Shari`a continues to draw on the major sources of Shari`a, with illustrations taken from the four main schools that have influenced its development. This part underpins all the remaining chapters which deal in turn with different national systems, building on the discussion of Shari`a by reference to local statutes, judicial precedents and commentaries. Detailed analysis of the law and practice is supported by extensive footnoting, guidance on further reading, and insights into the prevailing business practices within each country. A feature which will be particularly welcome by practicing lawyers and arbitrators is the inclusion of up-to-date discussion of practice and procedure for the execution and enforcement of domestic and foreign awards, and the legal pitfalls awaiting the unwary.
