This important casebook is based on the leading commentary in the field—Born’s treatise, International Commercial Arbitration (Kluwer Law International, 3d ed. 2021). The casebook provides a comprehensive treatment of international commercial arbitration (focused on the New York Convention and UNCITRAL Model Law), while also offering comparative examples drawn from state-to-state and investment arbitration. An easy-to-use chronological structure follows the course of an international arbitration. Careful case excerpts allow instruction to focus on key stages of the arbitration, legal issues and practical aspects of international arbitration, while also providing opportunities for discussions of policy considerations.
