SLN #: 88272
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: B03
Credit Hours: 1
Instructor(s): Nadeau

Course Description:
This course will meet for 6 weeks beginning Wednesday, October 24.

This course will focus on dispute resolution through the use of International Arbitration, which differs greatly from domestic arbitration. It will be taught by a lawyer with deep experience in such cases around the world, from China, Indonesia, South America, Europe and the United States. As a secondary focus, the course will address Bi-Lateral Investment Treaties and the process for resolution of complaints concerning trade protections and “takings” by foreign governments. Because many courts will refuse to accord full faith and credit to foreign court judgments, the only viable mechanism to resolve cross-border commercial disputes is International Arbitration pursuant to a United Nations Convention.
