INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION
(LAWG-4029) - 3 UNITS
Arbitration is the dispute resolution system most often chosen by lawyers involved in international business transactions. This course is designed to introduce students to both the theory and practice of international commercial arbitration. The "theory" portion of the course will examine the legal basis for international commercial arbitration, emphasizing the Federal Arbitration Act, the U.N. Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards and the UNCITRAL Model Law and Rules, which form the basis for the rules used by most international arbitration tribunals. The "practice" component will involve participating in a mock arbitration with other students.
