"Not since the 1996 UNCITRAL Notes on Organizing Arbitral Proceedings has so much expertise been garnered and made available to the international community in such a useful format. There are pointers on the selection of arbitrators and invaluable advice on acting as an arbitrator - whether as chair or party-appointee. Several authors provide first-hand insight into the chair's general duties in organizing and managing the proceedings, while others focus on par-ticular phases - hearing, deliberation, and drafting of the award. Nor have the contributors neglected the important procedural issues that frequently confront international arbitrators, such as discovery, interim measures, and confidentiality. 'The Leading Arbitrators' Guide to International Arbitration' reveals how the best-known arbitrators exercise that discretion, and illuminates many of the norms underlying this exercise."
