Considers the likely impact of the Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010 on Scotland's position as a seat for international commercial arbitration. Reviews the shortcomings of arbitration in Scotland prior to the Act and discusses the main features of the legislation, including its user-friendly format, the principles underpinning it, the courts' role and the powers of arbitral tribunals. Compares its provisions with the arbitration legislation of England and Ireland, and highlights five advantages which may assist Scotland to become a leading global centre for arbitration.
