LCIA Arbitration Rules
(adopted to take effect from 1 January 1985)

Article 14 - Jurisdiction of the Tribunal

14.1 The Tribunal shall have the power to rule on its own jurisdiction including any objections with respect to the existence or validity of the arbitration agreement For that purpose an arbitration clause which forms part of a contract shall be treated as an agreement independent of the other terms of the contract A decision by the Tribunal that the contract is null and void shall not entail ipso jure the invalidity of the arbitration clause.

14.2 A plea that the Tribunal does not have jurisdiction shall he raised not later than in the Statement of Defence A plea that the Tribunal is exceeding the scope of its authority shall be raised promptly after the Tribunal has indicated its intention to decide on the matter alleged to he beyond the scope of its authority In either case the Tribunal may nevertheless admit a late plea under this paragraph if it considers the delay justified.

14.3 In addition to the jurisdiction to exercise the powers defined elsewhere in these Rules the Tribunal shall have jurisdiction to determine any question of law arising in the arbitration; proceed in the arbitration notwithstanding the failure or refusal of any party to comply with these Rules or with the Tribunal s orders or directions or to attend any meeting or hearing but only after giving that party written notice that it intends to do so; and to receive and take into account such written or oral evidence as it shall determine to be relevant whether or not strictly admissible in law.
