Bok Course: International Commercial Arbitration (Born)
MWF 12:00PM - 2:50PM
Silverman Hall 280
This course meets during a special session:
(10/02/13 - 10/11/13)
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.
