Juris arbitration law.
French International Arbitration Law Reports: 2012 is the fifth yearly volume in a series of periodicals which set out the case law of the Paris Court of Appeal and the French Supreme Court relating to international arbitration. The case law is comprehensive and each case is published in the original French along with a expert translation into English provided by the Editors. The year 2012 is characterized by the fact that the decree no. 2011-48 of January 13, 2011 reforming the law of arbitration, began to be applied by the jurisprudence. It should be remembered that the new articles of the Code of Civil Procedure govern arbitration agreements and arbitration proceedings only after 1 May 2011, the date of entry into force of the new decree. Clearly, the courts have gradually become familiar with the new articles of the Code of Civil Procedure and the acclimatization has taken place without difficulty. Even though the jurisprudence applying the new decree has fallen far short of its cruising speed, in 2012 there are already some 20 decisions of judges on the merits that have covered the new provisions. Unsurprisingly, the articles most frequently applied are Articles 1456 CPC on the independence of the arbitrator, 1520 on the cases of the initiation of the action for annulment, and 1526 on provisional enforcement. The most important element to be noted is that there is no evidence of any change in the case law with the interpretation of the earlier texts. Continuity is therefore ensured for the time being. This is a sign that the new decree holds the shock of confrontation with reality and that it is solid.
