Confirming, vacating, modifying and correcting arbitration awards is governed by a body of procedural and substantive rules and principles known as “arbitration law.” This is your gateway page to learning some general information about arbitration law.
What’s a gateway page? It’s simply a menu of some of the basic information about arbitration law we’ve organized and compiled to help give readers of our websites and blogs a general overview of the subject, its importance and its often complex and counterintuitive nature.
Each of the blue-highlighted items that follows is a link to a page on this or another of our websites focusing on an arbitration-law related subject:
Arbitration law is the body of common law and statutory rules, principles and procedures that require and regulate the enforcement of arbitration agreements , whether by confirming, vacating, modifying or correcting arbitration awards; compelling or staying arbitration; staying litigation; appointing arbitrators and the like. Without it, arbitration would be, for the most part, an empty gesture. Parties would have to commence cumbersome plenary actions to enforce awards and obtain specific performance of arbitration agreements, arbitrators would lack subpoena power and breakdowns in the arbitrator selection process could not be remedied (or would be very difficult to remedy). In short, arbitration would lose much of its appeal because it would be difficult and expensive to enforce, and some aspects of it might not be enforceable in any meaningful fashion.

Some arbitration award enforcement proceedings are governed solely by state law and state arbitration statutes, while others are governed by a combination of federal arbitration law and state contract law. Still others are governed by some combination federal and state procedural and substantive arbitration law and state contract law.
The Federal Arbitration Act—once known as the United States Arbitration Act—is the principal source of federal substantive and procedural arbitration law. It applies to a large number of arbitration agreements and its substantive provisions apply in both state and federal court.
