Given that one of the most often stated benefits of arbitration is its simplicity, the law of commercial arbitration is in reality quite complex, and this book addresses important topics concerning the intellectually challenging law and practice of commercial arbitration. The author integrates coverage of domestic and international commercial arbitration, reconciling two competing realities: students being more likely to represent clients in domestic arbitrations, but today's economic globalization requiring exposure to international commercial arbitration. This new publication promotes extensive discussion of both sides of the underlying policy issues. The volume balances treatment of consumer and employer arbitration and also emphasizes legal aspects of arbitration within the commercial context. Problems in each chapter highlight key aspects of the leading cases and governing statutes and a teacher's manual provides additional pedagogical insight. Also included is a 2002 documents supplement with relevant additional materials.
