Arbitrability and restrictions on arbitration
2.1
How is it determined whether a dispute is arbitrable in your jurisdiction?
 
Bahrain
Although there are no legislative proscriptions, certain disputes may not be arbitrable in practice, including some family and inheritance matters and disputes that may involve public policy issues.

Subject to the chosen arbitration rules adopted, the parties are free to contest the arbitrability of a dispute before the arbitral tribunal or the Bahraini Civil High Court.

Under the Arbitration Law, the tribunal is permitted to determine and rule upon its own jurisdiction.
