International Dispute Resolution introduces students to the theory and practice of resolving international commercial disputes. The course compares and contrasts the benefits and drawbacks of international litigation, arbitration, and mediation as means of resolving disputes between private parties from different countries and between private parties and governments. Students participate in a simulated cross-cultural arbitration and mediation, and view audio-visual materials demonstrating international mediations and arbitrations. In addition to covering the law governing international litigation, arbitration, and mediation, there is an emphasis on the practical, how-to aspect of conducting such proceedings.
