German Arbitration Journal (SchiedsVZ)
The German Arbitration Journal is the first independent legal journal in Germany to concentrate on the continuously growing - and for legal counsel particularly interesting - legal area of arbitration.
The German Arbitration Journal focuses in particular on the development of arbitration in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The journal, however, also deals with arbitration in other countries.
The German Arbitration Journal is directed to anyone who is active in the field of arbitration, whether as arbitrator, legal counsel, in-house counsel or academic. It is, however, also directed to those interested in the field, who wish to better familiarize themselves with this seminal material.
Case law on arbitration and arbitral awards are a further major component of the German Arbitration Journal. Current decisions of the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) and the Higher Regional Courts (Oberlandesgerichte), as well as significant decisions of foreign courts are published and commentated, preceded by German and English-language summaries. In addition, the German Arbitration Journal publishes interesting arbitral awards of leading arbitral institutions, such as the ICC, the DIS, the International Arbitral Centre of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber or, for example, the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne.
In addition to the focus on arbitration, the content of the German Arbitration Journal is also supplemented by the presentation of proceedings subject to alternative dispute resolution mechanisms (Mediation, Mini-Trial, Last-Offer-Arbitration, etc.).
