Course Description:
This course will introduce students to the style of brief-writing popular for International Commercial Arbitration, as typified by winning briefs from the Vis Int'l Commercial Arbitration moot. In the first half of the course, students will review principles of effective and persuasive writing and gain an introduction to international sales law and arbitration, as well as to the Pace University Library web site for research. In the second half of the course, students will research, analyze, and write about at least one issue presented by the 2012-13 Vis moot problem. Assignments will include reading in texts, research, writing exercises, and likely a final exam of some sort. We will use portions of Prof. Calleros book on Legal Method and Writing, so retain that if you still have it from your first-year writing course.
