Restating the US Law of International Commercial Arbitration: "Between the "Domestic" and the "International"


The restatement of the US Law of International Commercial Arbitration is well on the road. Two chapters have been approved and are official. One is before the advisory committee at this time. And there remain two to go. This is a good moment to reflect on what it has meant to produce a domestic law restatement of a decidedly international law subject - something the foreign relations has faced and is currently facing.

The restatement has time and again had to navigate between fidelity to established US law principles, on the one hand, and aptness for the truly international phenomenon that arbitration has become, on the other. This webinar will hit the highlights of this fascinating exercise.

This is a recording of a webinar presented on October 8, 2014. Registration for this event may take place at anytime.
