Lawyers increasingly represent clients with global interests that require working across nations and cultures. They may engage in negotiating international contracts, participate in treaty negotiations, or act as mediators in international child custody disputes. It is most common to handle international matters that come before national courts. This fully revised third edition of International Dispute Resolution prepares law students to practice with confidence in handling international disputes. The book introduces students to the range of methods available in contemporary international practice. It is a comprehensive treatment of dispute resolution processes, including negotiation, mediation, inquiry, conciliation, arbitration, and adjudication.
The third edition brings two new co-authors to the book. Anna Spain Bradley (UCLA) and Amy Cohen (New South Wales/The Ohio State) have joined Mary Ellen O'Connell (Notre Dame) in collecting cases and materials that offer theoretically-informed approaches to practical issues and invoke materials inclusive of diverse perspectives. New decisions from national courts and the International Court of Justice on international dispute resolution are included. New material on investor-state arbitration and arbitrator ethics are featured, as well as a new treaty on international mediation. The problems that accompany each method are also new.
International Dispute Resolution remains the only comprehensive book on this vital and growing area of law practice. The law book market has many titles on arbitration and transnational litigation. This is the only casebook that introduces students to the full array of international dispute resolution methods. Knowledge of and expertise in these areas are an essential part of the modern lawyer's toolkit to prepare them for legal practice in today's world.
