In its second edition, "Costs in Arbitration Proceedings" has been updated to include sections on: agreements as to costs; the arbitrator's power to limit costs; and forms and precedents. It sets out the law of costs for the parties and of the parties, the arbitrators' fees, taxation of costs, and security for costs, costs implications of offers of settlement and application to the court in repect of costs.
