Judicial Review of Arbitral Award

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Arbitration is the process to settle dispute between the parties speedily and with confidentiality. The arbitration rules provide mechanism for judicial review of arbitral award as a supervision over arbitral process by the state at the seat of arbitration. An award reached by an arbitrator pursuant to a contractual agreement to arbitrate is not subject to judicial review except on the grounds set forth in law. According to article UNCITRAL Model Law recourse to a court against an arbitral award may be made only by an application for setting aside in accordance with paragraphs (2) and (3) of Article 34 (1). The object of research is to examine the ground of annulment of an arbitral award by the courts in the process of judicial review. If an award is set aside, it has no effects in the country where it was vacated. If setting aside occurs in a country in which, or under the law of which the award was made, such setting aside may become a reason under the New York Convention for other contracting states to refuse to recognize and enforce the set aside award. A brief review of legal provisions and judicial decisions demonstrate that courts in different jurisdictions interfered with arbitral awards only in limited circumstances. The study recommends that the judicial review of arbitral award should be done only on the grounds set forth in the law.
