Students are encouraged to stay home if you are ill or experience flu-like symptoms. If you miss a class for any reason, it is still your responsibility to make up the work missed.
I offer the following to students who miss class due to illness:
- Class sessions are regularly recorded. If you are absent due to illness or some other unavoidable circumstance, email me and I can send you an email with instructions for accessing the recording for the class session(s) you missed.
This course provides an overview of international commercial arbitration, with comparative consideration of investor-state and inter-state arbitration. We will examine the general subject of international arbitration agreements (including issues of validity and formation, choice-of-law and competence-competence), international arbitral proceedings (including issues of procedural autonomy, judicial non-intervention and common procedural formats) and international arbitral awards (including issues of annulment, non-recognition and preclusion). Practical exercises will be used where time permits (including drafting arbitration clauses, selection of arbitrators and negotiation of procedural timetables). Because this class meets for only two weeks (10/2 – 10/11) students must add/drop the class by the second meeting.
