Kluwer Arbitration Smart Charts

About the Kluwer Arbitration Smart Charts

The Smart Charts have been edited by Audley Sheppard, Head of International Arbitration Group, Clifford Chance LLP, with the assistance of James Dingley, Clifford Chance LLP, and a dedicated team of country contributors.

The question and answer Smart Charts allow you to quickly examine and/or compare specific content by particular jurisdiction or arbitral institution. The charts include:

  • Drafting an Arbitration Agreement
    A comparative summary of the main components of arbitration agreements across key jurisdictions. It assists with the drafting of valid and binding arbitration agreements and helps ensure that awards rendered in those jurisdictions are not subject to challenge, or have difficulty being enforced.
  • Sovereign Immunity
    A comparative summary of the circumstances in which, and legal basis on which, immunity from enforcement may be claimed by States and State entities across key jurisdictions. It assists with dispute management and planning and with enforcement once a favourable Award has been rendered.
  • Arbitral Institutions
    An at-a-glance comparative summary of the procedural rules of the major international Arbitral Institutions.

Using the Kluwer Arbitration Smart Charts

Each set of Smart Charts is accessible in three simple steps. After having chosen a particular set of Smart Charts do the following:

To use the Kluwer Arbitration Smart Charts:

2.      Select one or more topics/sub-topics/questions that you would like to examine for the jurisdiction(s) or arbitral institution(s) selected previously. Then press Next at the bottom of the screen.
Note: To return to the previews screen to review and/or amend your selection, press the Prev button. Also, the list of topics/sub-topics can be expanded or collapsed by pressing the + or – buttons.

3.      Review the results of your selection.

o   To undertake a fresh query, press ‘Start Over’.

Note: The results can be displayed in a ‘Chart View’ or in a ‘Matrix View’ (see the drop-down option at the top of the screen). The chart view allows you to see the related hierarchy of topics/sub-topics for each query while the matrix view presents all the selected queries side-by-side in a table.

Working with your Search Results

About your Search Results

Once you have entered your search criteria and processed your search, your search results list will display. At this point, you will have the option to open a single document or to select multiple documents to email or print. You will also have the option to narrow down the displayed results by using the following:

  • the document type tabs at the top of the search results list (i.e. commentary, court decisions, awards, rules and legislation), or
  • the search results filters to the left of the search results list

The numbers between brackets in the filters and document type tabs indicate the number of occurences;
as a document type occurs only once in a document, the number of document type occurences equals the number of documents.
For the other filters counts that in one document a term can occur multiple times and hence for these filters the number of occurences does not equal the number of documents.

Search Tips

Using Wildcards

The Asterisk (*) Wildcard

When using an Asterisk (*) Wildcard, type an asterisk (*) in place of a character in your search term to indicate that any number of characters can be substituted in place of the asterisk.

For example, if you type arbitra* as your search term, your results will include arbitrability, arbitration, arbitrations, etc.

The Double Quotes (" ") Wildcard

Use double quotes (" ") to define a phrase rather than a simple collection of terms.

Using Boolean Operators

Boolean operators are words that are used to combine different kinds of searches within one field.

You can use the following Boolean operators to refine your search term(s):

  • AND
    Use AND to search for documents containing each term at least once.
  • OR
    Use OR to search for documents containing at least one of the terms.
  • AND NOT
    Use AND NOT to search for documents containing the first term but not the second term.
  • NEAR
    Use NEAR to search for documents with the first term and the second term, and with maximal 4 words between them.

 

Precedence of Boolean operators

The precedence of the Boolean operators that can be used in the quick search is as follows: NOT, NEAR, AND, OR.

Queries like ‘x near y and z near a’ are processed from left to right and operators are handled in order of precedence. Operator NOT has the highest rank, while operator OR has the lowest.

In example 'x near y and z near a', operator 'near' has precedence over 'and', so the order of processing will be:

1.      x near y

2.      z near a

3.      'result of 1' and 'result of 2'

Another example: 'a near b and not c' is processed like this:

1.      a near b

2.      not c

3.      'result of 1' and 'result of 2'

Examples of Using Boolean Operators

  • contract AND termination
    Will find hits in which both "contract" and "termination" occur either combined or not combined.
  • arbitrability OR bias
    Will find hits in which either term or both terms occur at least once.
  • arbitrability AND NOT bias
    Will find hits in which only the term "arbitrability" occurs and not the term "bias".
  • investments AND international AND NOT commercial
    Will find hits in which both the terms "investments" and "international" occur, separately or combined, but not the term "commercial".
