The Law and Practice of Arbitration is a comprehensive treatise about the development and practice of arbitration law in the United States. It addresses in detail the recourse to arbitration in domestic matters -- employment, labor, consumer transactions, and business -- and its use in the resolution of international commercial claims. It covers all of the major subject areas in the field and provides practical advice as well as an easy-to-read, clear discussion of the relevant case law.
It represents a masterful synthesis of the entire body of arbitration law. It discusses basic concepts and doctrines, the FAA, freedom of contract in arbitration, arbitrability, the enforcement of awards, the use of arbitration in consumer and employment matters, institutional arbitration, and the drafting of arbitration agreements. It speaks of the federalization of the law and growing judicial objections to the use of adhesionary arbitration agreements in the consumer context.
The new 4th Edition is thoroughly updated. It includes extensive coverage and analysis of the four most recent United States Supreme Court cases: Stolt-Nielsen, Rent-A-Center, AT&T Mobility, and Granite Rock. The doctrine from the holding in these cases are integrated throughout the work. References in footnotes are more substantial and of greater utility to the researcher and reader. Several chapters have been completely rewritten to better convey the significance of the case discussion and analysis. The book includes new chapters on maritime arbitration, labor arbitration, and the California decisional position on arbitration. The volume represents the author’s continuing in-depth reflection on the practical and systemic consequences of United States Supreme Court’s decisional law on arbitration -- a process that is instrumental to the operation of the United States legal system as well as international business. The work continues its tradition of being the best statement on U.S. arbitration law and practice. The Law and Practice of Arbitration is a handy reference for all that have an interest arbitration law and practice.
