Intro to U.S. Arbitration Law
Academic Term and Year
The foundation course covers the fundamental principles and themes of U.S. arbitration law. The course begins with a thorough introduction to the history and operation of arbitration including its constituent concepts and basic institutions, as well as customary practices. The Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), the governing U.S. statute on arbitration, is covered extensively along with the impact of contract freedom upon the elaboration of an American law of arbitration. In addition, the Uniform Arbitration Law for states also is assessed. Several class sessions address the development of a doctrine of limited subject matter inarbitrability and the growth of arbitrator sovereignty as to jurisdiction, the conduct of proceedings, and the determination of the merits. Finally, problems relating to the enforcement of arbitral awards and other practical issues are addressed. The course includes a number of break-out sessions and a workshop component on drafting arbitration agreements. (London Study Abroad Program) J-Term or Summer Only Course
