Arbitration Seminar

This seminar explores the potential advantages and disadvantages of resolving disputes through arbitration rather than court proceedings. In addition, this course focuses on court enforcement of arbitration clauses and arbitral awards (including a study of the Federal Arbitration Act, the New York Convention, and state and federal case law). Arbitration association rules of procedure also will be examined as will actual arbitration clauses in commercial and consumer contracts. Enrollment limited.

Note: Due to some overlap in content, students who enroll in the Arbitration Seminar will not be eligible to take Arbitration Law.
