Abstract

This article examines the legal principles that have been laid down by Pakistan's Superior Courts as regards the necessity of having sufficient reasons in an arbitration award. It highlights the finer aspects of jurisprudence of Pakistan's domestic arbitration law whereby it is expected of an arbitrator or umpire to state in the award the reasons for such award in sufficient detail to enable the Court to consider any question of law arising out of the given award, and where such award does not state the reasons in sufficient detail, the Court must remit the award to the arbitrators or umpire and fix the time within which the arbitrator or umpire shall submit the award together with the reasons in sufficient detail.
