ICC upgrades online Dispute Resolution Library
ICC has today launched a new version of its Dispute Resolution Library (DRL), a databank of ICC publications and resources on dispute resolution. This 2014 upgrade, the first since the service was launched in 2008, includes new and improved search functions, navigation aids and display options, as well as a redesigned interface reflecting recent ICC branding changes.
DRL offers immediate online access to the
International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of
Commerce Bulletin, the Dossiers of the ICC Institute of World Business Law,
The Secretariat’s Guide to ICC Arbitration and other ICC publications and
documentation relating to dispute resolution. One of DRL’s major attractions is
the wealth of ICC awards it contains. The many hundreds of extracts from ICC
awards published in the Bulletin since 1990 are all available in DRL, with case
summaries in English, French and, now, Spanish.
The convenience of having these
publications all available on a single website is appreciated by many
practising lawyers. “I have found DRL to be immensely valuable when preparing
submissions, articles and speeches,” said Simon Greenberg, partner with
Clifford Chance and former Deputy Secretary General of the ICC International
Court of Arbitration. “The material is instantly accessible and searchable,
which makes DRL a great time-saver.”
Several sections of DRL are freely
accessible. They include a tool for finding where ICC awards have been
published, all ICC dispute resolution rules, and the reports of the ICC
Commission on Arbitration and ADR including the ICC Guide to National Procedures for Recognition and Enforcement of
Awards under the New York Convention. Access to the full Library is by
subscription. A range of tariffs is proposed, with discounts for individual
users, educational establishments and multiple accesses.
Sylvie Picard Renaut, Manager of the
Documentation and Research Centre of the ICC International Court of Arbitration
and a contributor to the upgrade, described the new DRL as “a major step
forward”. She singled out in particular the inclusion of the new search tool
for finding where an ICC award has been published. “This and the many other functional
improvements will greatly facilitate the everyday work of researchers and
documentalists,” Ms Picard Renaut predicted.
ICC developed DRL in collaboration with
Irish IT company, Coastline Solutions. Coastline manages access to the service
and can set up free trials upon request. To ask for a free trial write to firstname.lastname@example.org
