Legal Development in Scotland

Legal Development in Scotland

(p.1) Chapter 1 Legal Development in Scotland
Commercial Arbitration

Hong-Lin Yu

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter provides a historical overview of legal development in Scotland prior to the enactment of the Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010. It first considers Scotland's arbitration law, which was based almost entirely on the common law, with piecemeal statutory provisions dealing with specific points. It then discusses the laws that had governed the country's international commercial arbitration before turning to the Scottish Arbitration Code 1999 and the Arbitration (Scotland) Bills of 2002 and 2009. It also examines the Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010, designed to offer a ‘one-stop shop’ providing a single track of arbitration law corresponding with the modern trends in arbitration, both domestic and international. The Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010 was promulgated by the government with the aim of putting Scotland on the map of international arbitration and persuading international businessmen to choose Scotland as the place of their arbitration in order to generate revenue.

Keywords:   arbitration law, common law, international commercial arbitration, Scottish Arbitration Code 1999, Arbitration (Scotland) Bills, Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010, arbitration, Scotland, international arbitration
