The Kluwer Arbitration website has changed a lot recently, from simple changes of layout to brand new functions. This post aims to introduce these changes and how to benefit from them.
What can I use Kluwer Arbitration for?
The website offers arbitration specific information on:
- Case law and awards
- Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs)
If you are on the University’s network, you will be automatically signed in to the website. If you are using the website from outside the University, you can access via OxLIP+.
