This course provides students with the fundamental legal and jurisdictional underpinnings of the international commercial arbitration system of dispute resolution, the procedural mechanisms for conducting international commercial arbitrations, the domestic judicial tools to compel parties to arbitrate commercial disputes rather than proceed in domestic courts, and the enforcement of international commercial arbitration awards in domestic courts. This course also provides students with an introduction to the comparative law aspects of international commercial arbitration both for the procedural and the substantive matters in dispute.  *Law School Fall 2016 Semester starts 8/22/16
