Overview

This book provides both experienced and inexperienced practitioners, as well as advanced students, with a guide to the strategies associated with researching international commercial arbitration as well as the sources associated with that field of law. Up until very recently, the field of international commercial arbitration was populated solely by specialists who knew the sources and strategies for researching relevant authorities. However, as the practice and business of law has become more international and more diversified, generalists have begun to enter the field while the number of specialized sources associated with international commercial arbitration has grown exponentially. The book combines instructional text with a bibliography of sources to teach readers where to find relevant material. The instructional chapters discuss the most important methods by which one conducts research in international arbitration, while the bibliography provides guidance on where to find that material.

Furthermore, the book will offer tips on how to present a case to an international tribunal, which is quite different than presenting a case to a national court.

In effect, the book walks the reader through the steps associated with researching and presenting issues in international commercial arbitration. For example, the book covers:

·Where to find reported international arbitral awards (as opposed to judicial decisions)

·Where to find specialist treatises and journal articles on international arbitration

·How to use the various sources and evaluate the weight of competing authority

·How to present one's findings to an international arbitral panel

·How to consider the special issues that relate to international arbitration

Additionally, the book takes advantage of empirical research into the conduct of arbitration, giving an insider's view of the process.
