Twenty-first century lawyers practice law in a global village. They represent clients in negotiations for oil concession leases. They attend international treaty negotiations on behalf of sovereign states and environmental NGOs. They act as mediators in international child custody disputes and arbitrators for title to artworks displaced in war. They search the world for the right forum to bring claims for human rights violations, piracy prosecutions, and intellectual property protection. The successful 21st century lawyer is prepared to practice international dispute resolution, and this book is designed to assist in that preparation. It is a comprehensive treatment of the full range of dispute resolution processes, including negotiation, mediation, inquiry, conciliation, arbitration, and adjudication.

The second edition updates and expands the first edition. It includes additional materials on international commercial arbitration as well as recent decisions of the United States Supreme Court, the International Court of Justice and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes. New problems have been added and reading lists have been revised. Despite the new additions, the book remains highly teachable in a two or three credit-hour format.

The law book market has many titles on arbitration and transnational litigation. This is the only casebook, however, that introduces students to all of the dispute resolution mechanisms available internationally. Lawyers today need this information as much as they need the standard first year required course on civil procedure.
