LAW 2875 - International Commercial Arbitration
This course provides an overview of the law governing international commercial arbitration, focusing primarily on the UNCITRAL Model Law on Int’l Commercial Arbitration and the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards. Coverage includes provisional remedies and the form, content, and enforceability of awards. Additionally, the course will include study of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The course emphasizes planning and strategic considerations with which practitioners must concern themselves. The course includes a substantial skills component during the second half of the semester, where students research and analyze the problem distributed by the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot (published in early October). Students will draft briefs in support of the parties and study the presentation of the case contained in the problem. A team of students from the class will be selected to represent Hofstra in the Vis Moot competitions in Hong Kong, China and in Vienna, Austria during the following spring semester.
