LAW388  A  INVESTMENT ARBITRATION

Course Description
Investment arbitration is developing into a distinct specialization as parties increasingly rely on arbitration provisions in Foreign Investment Legislation, Bilateral Investment Treaties as well as such instruments as the Energy Charter Treaty, the Washington Convention and NAFTA for mechanisms to settle disputes between states and investors. The number of cases has grown exponentially in the past decade and new doctrines are being developed. This course will provide an overview of these new concepts as well as examining the specificity of a State as a party to an arbitration.
