London court of International Arbitration


On 5 April 1883, the Court of Common Council of the City of London set up an advisory group to draw up a proposition for the foundation of a council for the intervention of domestic and, specifically, of trans-national business conflicts emerging inside the ambit of the City. The Chamber was officially initiated on 23 November 1892. In April 1903, the council was renamed the London Court of Arbitration and, after two years, the Court moved from the Guildhall to the close by premises of the London Chamber of Commerce. The Court's managerial structure remained generally unaltered for the following seventy years.
In 1975, the Institute of Arbitrators joined the other two overseeing bodies and the previous mediation panel turned into the Joint Management Committee, diminished in size from the first twenty-four members to eighteen, six representatives from every one of the three associations. The Director of the Institute of Arbitrators turned into the Registrar of the London Court of Arbitration. In 1981, the name of the Court was changed to "The London Court of International Arbitration" (LCIA) to mirror the idea of its work, which was, at that point, overwhelmingly global.
