FAI case manager Adriana Aravena-Jokelainen has written an article in Spanish on the importance of the institutional model clause. The article titled “Arbitraje Institucional: La Importancia de la Cláusula Modelo” explores the importance of the model arbitration clause in international commercial arbitration, its content and effects, and recommendations on how to use it to draft an effective arbitration clause.
The article is part of the book “El Convenio Arbitral” — volume 62 of the Arbitration Library of the Peruvian law firm Estudio Mario Castillo Freyre — including studies on the arbitration agreement by Spanish-speaking authors.
