This course covers the law and practice of commercial arbitration, from both a caselaw standpoint of cases interpreting and applying the Federal Arbitration Act and from practical experience and class exercises drawn on the professor’s over 30 years of experience practicing arbitration. The course also examines ethical and societal issues in arbitration, including arbitrator conflicts and consumer access to justice, all of which have created an active SCOTUS arbitration docket in the past 15 years. The goal of the course is to ground any future lawyer in arbitration practice and procedure. The course is very much hybrid in nature, since we do both traditional case readings and also participate in class exercises, including negotiation sessions and a practical organizational conference with the Arbitrator. From time to time, schedules permitting, I will ask my experienced arbitration colleagues to join us, either live or by Zoom. These have been popular events in past years.
