Swedish Case Law Accessible in English - SCC News, 10 May 2012


The SCC is excited to offer this new service to the international arbitration community as a means to make Swedish case law more accessible to the international community and to increase transparency in arbitration”, said Annette Magnusson, Secretary General of the SCC, at the launch of the new portal.

The SCC rolled out the red carpet to host an exclusive launch party to unveil the new Swedish Arbitration Portal in Stockholm on 9 May 2012. The portal is an innovative service that provides the arbitration community with free access to English translations of Swedish court decisions on issues related to both international and domestic arbitrations. The Swedish Arbitration Portal opened to the public on 10 May 2012.

Nearly forty practitioners, arbitrators, journalists and sponsors attended the event to mingle and test out the Swedish Arbitration Portal. Attendees were particularly impressed by the range of cases that the portal offers, containing decisions spanning more than thirty years, including a translation of the most recent Swedish court decision on an arbitration issue from April 2012.

SCC Partners on this project are JP Infonet and VQ.
