Israel’s New International Arbitration Law: A Modern Leap Forward

Israel, in its journey towards becoming a more modern and open hub for international commercial dispute resolution, recently achieved a significant milestone. On February 12, 2024, the Israeli legislature passed the International Commercial Arbitration Law (the “international arbitration law”), marking a pivotal moment in the country’s legal landscape. This long-awaited legislation aims to address the shortcomings of Israel’s outdated legal framework concerning international arbitration and bring it in line with global standards.

Israel’s commitment to facilitating efficient and fair dispute resolution while adhering to international norms is evident in this legislative development. Furthermore, these legal reforms are poised to stimulate Israel’s economic growth and enhance its standing on the global stage.
