Jus Mundi's Coverage

Jus Mundi has the most comprehensive collection with more than 35 thousand public international law, ISDS, and commercial arbitration documents, as well as more than 4 thousand treaties.

All awards and decisions have been converted from a poor quality PDF format to a high-quality paragraph-structured document with an interactive table of contents.

We collect the primary sources of international law divided into international treaties and international cases, our two main databases.

At Jus Mundi, you can find all publicly available Bilateral Investment Treaties, Free Trade Agreements (at least the Investment Chapters), and major Multilateral Agreements (e.g. Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties or Energy Charter).

  • For Investment Arbitration we have gathered more than 8300 ISDS awards and other publicly available case documents (Procedural Orders, Written Submissions, Expert Opinions, etc.). They come from different sources, including institutions databases (ICSID, PCA, SCC, etc.)

  • In addition, we have included the texts of some rare ISDS awards (e.g. Amco v. Indonesia) or awards that are important for investment arbitration (e.g. Texaco v. Libya).

  • As for the IUSCT, we have concluded a partnership with the Tribunal, giving us access to all decisions from IUSCT.

  • We also display data about the tribunals' composition, counsels, applicable treaties on more than 450 confidential cases. This data is gathered from the arbitral institution's databases or directly from the participants of the case.

  • For Public International Law we have gathered more than 13.000 Inter-State documents (ICJ, ITLOS, WTO, Inter-State Arbitration) from institutions databases and from the UN Report of International Arbitral Awards. Thanks to it, we were able to collect almost 1000 decisions from Mixed Commissions important for such questions of customary international law like dual nationality, damages, etc.

  • Additionally we provide you with arbitration-related national set-aside and/or enforcement proceedings helping you to check how different awards and decisions and are treated by national courts of different States.

How do we gather the Commercial arbitration data on Jus Mundi?

Jus Mundi gathers its commercial arbitration data from two main sources:

1️⃣ - An exclusive database of awards that have been made public in national set aside or implementation proceedings. We have been able to track these awards thanks to the proprietary algorithms developed by our team.

2️⃣ - The aggregation of case-related metadata provided by the institutions themselves on their websites such as the ICC database.

Exclusive Partnerships

3️⃣ - Our Exclusive Partnership with the IBA, to promote accessibility in non-confidential Commercial Arbitration awards. This partnership is the first collaborative initiative to collect non-confidential commercial arbitration awards worldwide and make them easily accessible to the global legal community. You can have more information about this exclusive partnership between Jus Mundi and the IBA, here.

4️⃣ - Our Unique Partnership with the ICC, to make ICC arbitral awards and related documents made as of 1 January 2019 freely available to the global legal community. You can have more information about this unique partnership between ICC and Jus Mundi, here.

Why are some arbitral awards only available in Jus Mundi?

Our team has developed proprietary algorithms that scan domestic litigations worldwide on a daily basis. This allows us to track, before anyone else, arbitral awards that have been made public in set-aside or enforcement proceedings. We also collect awards directly from the databases of arbitral institutions or from the participants in the case.

Is Jus Mundi up to date, including pending proceedings?

As international jurisprudence evolves with every case, Jus Mundi ensures that newly released documents are always integrated into our database within one week.

As soon as we become aware of a new pending arbitration case, including Notice of Intent, we create it in Jus Mundi with the available information (i.e. the parties, their counsel, the composition of the tribunal, etc.). Our technological innovations and our in-house team of lawyers ensure this legal monitoring.

Discover our new feature: "My Alerts"

We also have a new feature called "My Alerts", that allows you to keep track of an Arbitrator or a Case. You will receive a notification every time we add new data related to the Cases and/or Arbitrators you are following. You can access "My Alerts" through our landing page:

More information on "My Alerts", here. This feature is very useful, especially for not loosing track on pending cases.
