International Commercial Arbitration and the Courts
J.D. Course 1043 (cross-listed) | 1 credit hours
This intensive course takes a close look at international commercial arbitration in U.S. law, with special reference to the judicial/arbitral interface. At every major milestone in an arbitration, judicial recourse is a significant prospect -- from compelling arbitration or otherwise enforcing the agreement to arbitrate, to ensuring that a tribunal is properly composed and the arbitration takes off properly, to provisional relief over the course of the arbitration, to confirmation or vacatur of an international award made in the U.S., to recognition and enforcement of international awards made abroad (typically under the all-important New York and Panama Conventions).
Recommended: Civil Procedure.
