The third, fully revised edition of Private Dispute Resolution in International Business now consists of two books and an interactive USB Card, to give you easier access to this valuable information.
This new multimedia project will help you analyse the various ways of resolving an international business dispute: through negotiation, business mediation and international commercial arbitration.
The updated and revised Handbook takes account of recent developments in the law and practice of ADR in international business. Practical and user-friendly, it is complemented by the usability and graphical interface of the digital content.
The print components (Case Study and Handbook) convert each theory into clear practical guidance, while the interactive electronic resources (on the USB Card) include more than four hours of highly realistic training videos. These will provide you with vivid simulation and documentary support down to the smallest detail.
The work takes account of new case law and academic writings, as well as specific subjects that have been the focus of legal practice in recent years. These include the pros and cons of best practices, the use of ‘guerrilla tactics’, and the role of secretaries in international arbitration.
The Case Study (Volume I) follows the progress of an international business dispute between two companies, in step-by-step detail, through negotiation, mediation, and arbitration in turn. You’ll find a realistic and highly practical approach to learning and teaching the law and practice of private dispute resolution in international business.
The Handbook (Volume II) is a comprehensive, comparative study of the law of international dispute resolution, providing precise, informed solutions to the problems raised in the first volume’s Case Study. You can also use the Handbook as a stand-alone reference manual for international arbitration law. To help you with this, the Handbook contains a new and comprehensive Table of Contents and a detailed Index.
The book includes the publication of new rules and best practice texts, such as:
The USB Card allows for a highly innovative, multimedia and interactive training and learning experience, and can be used simultaneously with the books or separately.
It contains all contracts and other written documentation produced during the dispute – including all procedural orders and awards rendered by the arbitral tribunal during the arbitration, the text of legal materials such as arbitration laws and rules and international conventions, and further learning and teaching aids. It also includes almost 100 videos dramatising the negotiation, mediation, and arbitration proceedings described in the books, conducted by highly experienced practitioners active in the field of international dispute resolution.
Subtitles in the videos refer you to paragraphs in the Handbook, where each relevant legal problem is analysed. In addition, an internet home page provides you with regular updates.
If your interest is in international arbitration, you can take advantage of a variety of interactive training tools within the USB. You’ll find tools for effective case management, written submissions, opening statements, cross-examination, the ‘coaching’ of witnesses, and the drafting of escalation clauses in international arbitration.
The highly practical approach taken by Private Dispute Resolution in International Business provides you with an innovative teaching and training tool. It will be essential reading for students and teachers of dispute resolution, corporate counsel, international lawyers, and anyone interested or involved in this key area.
