Available from Amazon, this book discusses arbitration law and practice clearly and reliably, with engaging context ranging from partisan political battles to a Justin Bieber tweet. Balanced and comprehensive, the book covers major types of arbitration in the United States―commercial (including securities and trade associations), labor, employment, consumer, insurance, medical, and religious―as well as important types of international arbitration, such as commercial, maritime, investment, and sports. A carefully constructed teaching tool, Arbitration intersperses contemporary disputes―involving Uber’s app, Donald Trump’s confidentiality agreement, Jay-Z’s impact on arbitrator diversity, and the relationship between gender and biology―among:
- All the major Supreme Court cases from 1953 through 2019;
- Current case law on evolving topics, such as delegation clauses, contracts formed by clicking links on cell phones, and substitutes for the class actions limited by Concepcion;
- The full text of the Federal Arbitration Act, New York Convention, and Panama Convention;
- Chapters divided into short, coherent sections suitable for a single class session; and
- “Questions to Review and Synthesize” after the reading for each class session.
