Professor Chiara Giovannucci Orlandi, University of Bologna
This course will concentrate on arbitration, which is the principal alternative form of dispute resolution to civil litigation. The course will cover the major differences between arbitration and other methods of alternative dispute resolution, and will focus on issues relating to international commercial arbitration. Special attention will be given to the European laws on international arbitration and to the rules of the most influential international arbitration institutions (e.g., The International Arbitration Chamber of Milan, The International Chamber of Commerce of Paris, The American Arbitration Association, and The London Court of International Arbitration). Special regard will be given to the 1958 New York Convention on the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards and its application in the United States.
