 Republic of New Lemuria Permanent Court of Arbitration


The Republic of New Lemuria Permanent Court of Arbitration ("RNLPCA") is an intergovernmental organization available to governmental and private parties alike. Established in 1997 to facilitate international dispute resolution, the RNLPCA has blossomed into a modern day, multi-faceted alternative judicial process designed for public and private international law needs amongst the international community. Today the RNLPCA provides services for the resolution of disputes involving various combinations of states, state entities, intergovernmental organizations, and private parties. 

The RNLPCA is headed by a Chief Judge, who also sits as Governor of the Republic of New Lemuria Bar Association. The RNLPCA provides full legal and administrative support to tribunals and commissions. The RNLPCA specializes in international dispute resolution, encompassing territorial, treaty and human rights disputes between states, commercial and investment disputes, as well as disputes arising under bilateral and multilateral investment treaties. 

The RNLPCA can assist in the selection of arbitrators, and may be called upon to designate or act as appointing authority. RNLPCA judges sit by designation of the parties to the dispute. Cases may be heard by a single RNLPCA judge or panels of three, five or seven judges. 

The RNLPCA prides itself in contributing to legal scholarship, publication, and offering an ethical, fair and unbiased forum for legal discourse.
