International Arbitration

The courts’ position on reviewing awards has very important consequences because the chances of the award being overturned are much greater if the courts are more inclined to carry out their review work with an expansive rather than a limited scope. To contribute to shedding more light on the case law crafted on court control over arbitration in Spain, Colección Garrigues has published a work in Spanish on the subject of setting aside the award on the ground of infringement of public policy (La anulación del laudo por infracción del orden público), a topical subject on which the constitutional court judgment rendered on June 15, 2020 disagreed with a “broadening” of the definition of public policy adopted by Madrid High Court.
