The Law Commission of England & Wales has, on 6 September 2023, published its final report on its review of the Arbitration Act 1996, following an extensive consultation.  The modest reforms cover topics such as the governing law of arbitration agreements, summary disposal in arbitration proceedings and arbitrator disclosure.  In other areas, the Law Commission has concluded that reform is unwarranted or may lead to unintended consequences.  We summarise and evaluate the key conclusions in the report and explain how they will impact the users of arbitration in England & Wales.
