Arbitration is strongly favored by the courts, and judicial review of arbitration awards is much more limited than review of trial court decisions. It is important for students to understand the arbitration process because it virtually always results in a final and binding award.
This casebook focuses primarily on contract-based, binding commercial arbitration. "Commercial" includes employment disputes and arbitration between grievance arbitration pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement. Finally, a chapter is devoted to arbitration at the behest of the government, including court-annexed arbitration, that is not based on party assent.
This book also is available in a three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
