Abstract

Outlines the meaning of arbitration and the legal characteristics it possesses under Greek Law. Looks at the type of cases subject to arbitration, the arbitration agreement and the use of the civil court. Compares the situation to US Law, again outlining the legal stance and covering areas such as the methods employed with the courts, conduct of the hearing, limitations of the arbitrator’s power and the judicial review of awards made. Concludes that both systems rely on the courts to make vital decisions and advocates a secondary system without such reliance.
