781 - International Dispute Resolution
Professor: Amy J. Cohen
Semester: 2009 Winter
Second Writing? No
Professional Responsibility? No
This course surveys the dispute settlement mechanisms available for resolving disputes with an international dimension. It is organized around the classic categories of the field: negotiation, mediation, fact-finding, conciliation, arbitration, and adjudication. Despite the classic approach, the course emphasizes the many new developments in this area of law, with regard to both private international disputes and public (government-to-government) disputes. Among the new areas for consideration are the dispute settlement mechanisms of NAFTA and the World Trade Organization; the growing number of tribunals to resolve disputes; the increasing use of international arbitration; and the increasing use of national courts to settle international disputes, including those of a public character.
