Arbitration Law Handbook

Japan OVERVIEW The legislative framework for arbitration in Japan is the Arbitration Law, Law 138 of 2003. This law is based on the UNCITRAL Model Law, although there are some differences, in particular, in connection with the provisions relating to the conclusion of an arbitration agreement. Japanese law does not require that the arbitration agreement be contained in a document signed by all the parties and article 13(4) allows for an arbitration agreement to be contained in an e-mail.
