September 11, 2014
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.
The Law and Practice of Arbitration, now in its fifth edition, is a comprehensive treatise about the development and practice of arbitration law in the United States. It addresses in detail the recourse to arbitration in domestic matters -- employment, labor, consumer transactions, and business -- and its use in the resolution of international commercial claims. It covers all of the major subject areas in the field and provides practical advice as well as an easy-to-read, clear discussion of the relevant case law.
Moore's Federal Practice, published by LexisNexis, is one of the most cited texts in the legal world with over 50,000 citing opinions since it was first published in 1938.
In his nearly 35 years in legal education, Carbonneau has written extensively on matters of international litigation and arbitration. He is the author of 20 books and more than 80 articles on legal topics. An expert in the domestic, comparative, and international law of arbitration, Carbonneau has written several books on arbitration, including a treatise and a casebook. A former Rhodes Scholar, Carbonneau held the Visiting Chair in Comparative Law and Legal Pluralism at McGill Faculty of Law in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in spring 2010. He oversees publication of the Yearbook on Arbitration and Mediation.
His latest book, Toward a New Federal Law on Arbitration, will be published later this month.
