Course Description

Arbitration - LAW663
3 Credits

This course will fully explore arbitration under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. While the course focus wil necessarily begin with the statute, most of the law governing arbitration under the Act is found in federal court opinions, including a substantial body of case law generated by the Supreme Court. The course will also touch upon the role of arbitral institutions and institutional arbitration rules, and may, to the extent time allows, briefly address the role of state arbitration law. This is largely a doctrinal course in its coverage of the law governing arbitration, though the coverage of arbitral institutions and rules will also address a variety of practical considerations. (No prerequisite.)
