Arbitration Law Review

The Arbitration Law Review is a student-edited publication done in a law review format. Each editorial board produces a stand-alone book rather than a number of issues that are eventually assembled in a collective volume. The Arbitration Law Review covers primarily domestic U.S. developments in arbitration and mediation, but periodically addresses transborder developments and matters relating to other dispute resolution procedures. The Review publishes scholarly articles resulting from an annual symposium, as well as student pieces on recent case law and legislative enactments, along with book reviews.

The U.S. Supreme Court continues to show substantial interest in the law of arbitration and to favor this form of adjudication.  State and federal courts generally embrace alternative means of resolving disputes. Arbitration, mediation, and negotiation are now a genuine part of the U.S. legal system and law practice. Additionally, arbitration has become critical to global commerce, and mediation is used in many countries to avoid litigation. The Review fulfills the need for the professional discussion of developments in these areas.

Professor Thomas E. Carbonneau, the founder of the Review and its predecessor, and Professor Nancy Welsh are the co-faculty advisors. Professor Carbonneau addresses arbitration matters. Professor Welsh focuses primarily on mediation and other consensual dispute resolution procedures.
