News Reporter, Global Arbitration Review
Farringdon, Greater London, England
Permanent (Full time)
Salary: Competitive, DoE
Global Arbitration Review (GAR) is
the world’s leading resource for practitioners of international arbitration – a
method of dispute resolution that is used to settle some of the world’s most
important cross-border commercial conflicts. We provide news, analysis, debate
and specialist guides about an area of law that is underreported and often
poorly understood by the popular press.
Law Business Research is committed

GAR reports on claims brought by
investors against foreign governments, big-ticket commercial disputes between
multinationals, and politically sensitive state-to-state disputes such as
boundary conflicts. These cases take place outside national courts and often

arbitrators who handle these cases, tracking their professional moves.
