  • The term “pathological arbitration clauses” was coined in a lecture by Frederic Eisemann in 1974 and relates to arbitration clauses which contain one or more defect. This has been debated by academic ever since, and is or crucial importance to arbitration practitioners. Arguments regarding pathological arbitration clauses often arise in cases where a claimant commences a claim in court and the defendant seeks to stay the claim to arbitration on the basis of an arbitration clause, to which the claimant responds that the arbitration clause is invalid or inoperable. Parties may be put to considerable time and expense in such cases, which can easily be avoided if the arbitration clause is drafted accurately in the first place.
    We start with the law relating to arbitration clauses as set out in Federal Law No. 6 of 2018 on Arbitration; by way of comparison, we may also consider the English Arbitration Act 1996. We will examine the essential elements of an effective arbitration clause, and we will consider a well-drafted arbitration clause.
    Having explained the basis of the course, we then proceed through a series of arbitration clauses which have arisen in actual cases and are said to be defective or “pathological”. Such a clause may simply be defective it its drafting, it may be equivocal or uncertain, it may be inconsistent or inoperable. The pathology may be curable or it may be incurable. We will examine various examples to clarify exactly why they are said to be pathological.
    A clause which is regarded as pathological in one jurisdiction may be regarded as effective, or capable of being made effective, in another jurisdiction. UAE courts take the view that court litigation is the normal venue for settling legal disputes and that arbitration is an exception to that; if the arbitration clause is found to be ineffective, any right to arbitration may be lost. The courts tend to the view that you get one chance at arbitration and if that fails, you must bring your claim in court.
