An introduction on the practical experience of commercial arbitrage in Latin America
will be given by Katherine González Arrocha, General Advisor of the
International Court of Arbitrage at the International Chamber of Commerce.
International commercial arbitration has undergone fundamental changes in most
countries of Latin America in the last decade, especially in the countries of the
MERCOSUR and the associate countries.
This manual provides practitioners and scholars alike with quick access
to and in-depth analysis of the laws of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile

nearly 100 judges, lawyers, and scholars assure that the practical reality is well
reflected in the analysis. A bilingual annex contains the English translations of all
