Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced its collaboration with Arbitrator Intelligence (AI) to improve resources available to the arbitration community and bring more transparency to the arbitration process.

Through this collaboration, Wolters Kluwer will provide AI’s Arbitrator Intelligence reports on Kluwer Arbitration, making highly valuable data widely available and providing users with important insights throughout arbitrator selection process.

“Wolters Kluwer is delighted to support this important initiative by AI,” said Gwen de Vries, Director of Publishing of the International Group at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “The organization’s mission to make the arbitrator selection process more transparent will benefit the arbitration process, which will ultimately benefit the arbitration community.”

AI is a non-profit, university-affiliated entity that aims to promote fairness, transparency, accountability and diversity in arbitrator selection and appointments. Through its anonymous questionnaire (called the “Arbitrator Intelligence Questionnaire” or “AIQ”), AI collects objective information and professional assessments of arbitrators’ case management skills and decision making. When sufficient feedback is received, AI compiles the anonymized data into individual “Arbitrator Intelligence Reports.”

“As a non-profit start up, we are delighted to work with Wolters Kluwer to improve the arbitrator selection process,” said Catherine Rogers, Founder of Arbitrator Intelligence. “Through this collaboration we hope to make valuable information more accessible to legal professionals in arbitration.”

The Wolters Kluwer International unit recently launched the next generation of Kluwer Arbitration, the world’ leading research solution for international arbitration. With more than 500 arbitration laws, 10,000 court decisions with full analysis, and commentary from more than 300 authors, the site provides legal professionals with market-leading content and fast, accurate research functionality.

  1. Indeed a great step towards transparency, inclusiveness, and diversity in international arbitration. Not only will AI allow users and decision-makers to get acquainted with other / different players and stakeholders, but also it will allow consistency in the decision-making process (and thus creating a true “precedent” in int’l arbitration, who knows?). AI will facilitate access to information on “who decided” and “how she/he decided” … and that’s unquestionably a great achievement!
    KUDOS Catherine!!!
