International arbitration is increasingly recognized as a transnational system of justice, if not a genuinely autonomous legal order, sometimes labeled as the arbitral legal order. This evolution, however, continues to generate robust controversies on the extent of autonomy of international arbitration from national legal systems and the role, if any, that the seat of the arbitration should have over the arbitral process.
