International Commercial Arbitration | L4341-Shill
This course provides an introduction to the field of international commercial arbitration, which has become the leading mechanism for settling international business disputes. The course will examine international and American law, with an emphasis on the U.S. perspective. We will study several critical areas of the subject, including the agreement to arbitrate, differences among arbitral bodies and arbitrators, the arbitration process, the arbitral award, and the law and procedure of litigating its enforcement. The class is intended as an introduction to the materials, controversies, and methods of the field (not specifically as preparation for the Vis Moot competition). It will be small and evaluation will be by means of short writing assignments, in-class simulation exercises, and class participation.
