Have you ever wondered what system of citation to follow when citing evidence and authorities in international arbitration? How do you ensure that your team uses a consistent system of citation so you can avoid the last-minute race to harmonise disparate approaches? Have you ever hoped there was a simple, sensible system of citation that leading arbitrators and practitioners in the field have not only endorsed, but helped to develop?
The second edition of Global Arbitration Review’s UCIA – Universal Citation in International Arbitration, the widely respected, desktop manual on citation in international arbitration was published in March 2023. UCIA is a consensus document, authored by leaders in the field, on the most efficient and effective citation system for use in arbitral proceedings around the world. This book provides a uniform approach to citing exhibits and authorities, including contracts, witness statements, expert reports, correspondence, statutes, arbitral rules, cases, hearing transcripts, treaties, travaux préparatoires, internet material, books and legal reviews.
