Firm Plays Leading Role in New UNCITRAL Secretariat Guide on the New York Convention and Updated Convention Website

UNCITRAL has announced the publication of the UNCITRAL Secretariat Guide on the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, 1958. The Guide was prepared in cooperation with Emmanuel Gaillard, head of Shearman & Sterling’s International Arbitration Group, and Professor George A. Bermann of Columbia Law School.

As part of the preparation of the Guide, Shearman & Sterling and Columbia Law School launched, in cooperation with UNCITRAL, the newyorkconvention1958.org website in 2012. The website is the product of a coordinated effort to create an interactive online platform that makes information on the New York Convention publicly available. A new version of the website was recently launched to complement and replace the original. This new version provides free access to more than 1,200 cases from a wide number of common law and civil law jurisdictions, and also includes more than 100 English translations of those decisions.
