NYIAC Case Law Library
On January 1, 2015, NYIAC began collecting and cataloguing international arbitration decisions issued by New York courts. Now those decisions – and key identifying information such as the decision date, the stage of the case, and the main issues treated by the court – are available on the NYIAC website. This project was made possible by Mark Stadnyk at Norton Rose Fulbright (US) and by Fastcase, a modern legal research tool.
