LAW681  AW  FEDERAL AND STATE ARBITRATION

Course Description
Arbitration is an essential part of dispute resolution today, including both purely domestic disputes as well as cross-boarder disputes. As a consequence, practitioners are required to understand the legal framework under which arbitration is conducted in the United States. This course is an introduction to the Federal Arbitration Act, the arbitration practice under state law, and the UNCITRAL Model Law (which was recently adopted for international commercial arbitration in Florida).
