Ethics in International Arbitration Reviews
A special edition of The Law and Practice of Arbitration, by Thomas E. Carbonneau, Samuel P. Orlando Distinguished Professor of Law and director of the Penn State Institute of Arbitration Law and Practice, has been published as volume 31 of Moore's Federal Practice, one of the nation's leading treatises on federal courts and procedure.
Thomas E. Carbonneau, the Samuel P. Orlando Distinguished Professor of Law and director of the Penn State Institute of Arbitration Law and Practice, has published the Fifth Edition of “The Law and Practice of Arbitration.” Arbitration, he writes, has become the “primary mechanism and [the] most effective process” for resolving civil disputes in the United States. It adjudicatory vocation, however, is not limited to the U.S. legal system.
In today's global economy, parties to cross-border commercial transactions increasingly choose international arbitration to resolve their disputes. This summer lawyers and law students trained outside of the U.S. can study international arbitration law at Penn State Law.
More than a dozen legal experts will convene at Penn State University Dickinson School of Law to consider alternative dispute resolution (ADR) as U.S. and international public policy on January 31, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The day will be organized into a morning session which will look at arbitration and an afternoon session focused on mediation.
Third-year law students Anthony Rallo and Thomas Robins are headed home for the break with a significant achievement to brag about. Two prestigious, peer-reviewed legal journals accepted their scholarly articles for publication, an honor typically reserved for faculty scholars. “I wouldn’t have submitted the article if Professor Blankfein-Tabachnick hadn’t encouraged me,” Robins said. Rallo said he also submitted his article on arbitration at the urging of Professor Carbonneau.
Professor Catherine Rogers is a founding faculty member on the newly launched Singapore International Arbitration Academy. Established this year by the Centre for International Law and the National University of Singapore, the academy trains private sector and public sector lawyers and officials from Singapore, the ASEAN member states, Hong Kong, India, Kenya, New Zealand, Spain, and Tanzania in an effort to build capacity in international commercial and investment treaty arbitration in the Asia-Pacific region.
