‘Drawing on his long and practical experience [the author gives] guidance which only the foolhardy would reject without good reason for doing so. With this manual beside him, many an arbitrator will, I feel sure, sleep the sounder.’ - The Rt Hon The Lord Bingham of Cornhill. The preparation of an arbitrator's award requires a rigorous approach to the consideration of submissions and evidence, and to the decisions stemming from that consideration, and the arbitrator must be competent to draft a valid and enforceable award. These tasks can be complex for any arbitrator, particularly so for the less experienced. This book has been written to provide clear and practical guidance, whilst emphasising that there is no standard method of preparing or writing an award. It includes illustrations relating to a wide range of types of award. It will be of interest to all arbitrators and those involved in the process, whether they are concerned with commodities, insurance, maritime matters, rent disputes, construction or commerce.

This casebook presents material which both students and practitioners will find useful in analyzing, writing, and interpreting arbitration awards and cases. Unlike the traditional casebook, there are less theoretical concepts and historical developments. Instead, the book includes a broad collection of arbitration court cases and arbitration awards to analyze, followed by discussion questions, case problems, and summaries. Court cases and arbitration awards were selected which set forth clear and practical substantive and procedural arbitration principles. In addition, leading Supreme Court cases, which outline and identify federal common law rules and policies on arbitration, are included to illustrate the judicial process for establishing precedent and federal common arbitration laws. Similarly, a selected number of secondary readings, which should enhance the reader's understanding and application of specific arbitration concepts, are inserted to give the reader an immediate opportunity to synthesize a wealth of arbitration concepts and principles. The book is divided between labor and employment arbitration with a major emphasis on labor arbitration. The labor arbitration section provides a wide range of reoccurring labor issues such as, management rights, seniority, subcontracting, benefits, wages and hours, off duty conduct, and safety policies. Because disciplinary actions remain the dominant issue arbitrated, a significant amount of material is included on the "just cause" principles. Through arbitration awards, each element of the "just cause" principle is explained and analyzed. Aside from disciplinary issues, the book also covers issue grievances, which primarily involve contract interpretation. The last section of the book discusses the development of employment arbitration. This area of arbitration has rapidly expanded in the private sector. The catalyst for this expansion was caused in part by The Supreme Court's liberal interpretation of the Federal Arbitration Act and most recently, the validation of mandatory arbitration provisions in employment contracts. This section of the book includes the leading Supreme Court decisions on compulsory arbitration and the application of these cases on discrimination claims, employment statutes, and contract disputes. Floyd D. Weatherspoon is a Professor at Capital University Law School (Columbus, Ohio), where he has taught labor and employment related courses, including arbitration for more than twenty-five years. Professor Weatherspoon also serves as a neutral in complex commercial, labor, and employment disputes. He is nationally recognized as a highly experienced labor and employment arbitrator. He serves on a number of state and national arbitration rosters and panels, including the American Arbitration Association's Labor and Employment Panels, the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service's Roster and the National Mediation Board's Arbitration Panel. In addition to serving as a labor and employment arbitrator, he has also served as a fact-finder in a number of labor contract disputes. Professor Weatherspoon is a member of the National Academy of Arbitrators, and serves on the Council of the American Arbitration Association.

This book initiates a discussion of the law and practice of recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards in both common law and civil law countries. In terms of law, this book principally focuses on the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 1958, and the harmony or clash between the New York Convention and national arbitration laws of both common law and civil law countries including the UK and the USA (as common law countries), and France, Germany and Greece (as civil law countries). In terms of practice, this book deeply and extensively examines the judicial application of the New York Convention in national courts of common law and civil law countries, and sheds light on the best practices related to the judicial application of the New York Convention, while also highlighting how future disputes can be resolved in national courts. As such, this book provides solutions for salient and recurring problems arising out of the erroneous judicial application or interpretation of the New York Convention by national courts, and encourages the adoption of a more liberal regime in favour of the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards generally, and the adoption of a more liberal interpretation of the New York Convention in national courts of both common law and civil law countries particularly. This book, which is based on more than 100 courts’ decisions from common law and civil law countries, is a valuable resource for academics, arbitrators, practicing lawyers, corporate counsels, law students and researchers interested in international commercial arbitration, as well as for business professionals involved in international trade, and those who are willing to solve their commercial disputes through arbitration.

In the context of harmonisation of arbitration law and practice worldwide, to what extent do local legal traditions still influence local arbitration practices, especially at a time when non-Western countries are playing an increasingly important role in international commercial and financial markets? How are the new economic powers reacting to the trend towards harmonisation? China provides a good case study, with its historic tradition of non-confrontational means of dispute resolution now confronting current trends in transnational arbitration. Is China showing signs of adapting to the current trend of transnational arbitration? On the other hand, will Chinese legal culture influence the practice of arbitration in the rest of the world? To address these challenging questions it is necessary to examine the development of arbitration in the context of China's changing cultural and legal structures. Written for international business people, lawyers, academics and students, this book gives the reader a unique insight into arbitration practice in China, based on a combination of theoretical analysis and practical insights. It explains contemporary arbitration in China from an interdisciplinary perspective and with a comparative approach, setting Chinese arbitration in its wider social context to aid understanding of its history, contemporary practice, the legal obstacles to modern arbitration and possible future trends. In 2011 the thesis on which this book was based was named 'Best Thesis in International Studies' by the Swiss Network for International Studies. "What distinguishes this work from other books on international arbitration is its interdisciplinary perspective and comparative approach...this book makes a remarkable contribution to the understanding of arbitration in China and transnational arbitration in general. Academics, scholars and students of international arbitration, comparative studies and globalisation may all find this book stimulating. It also provides useful guidance for practitioners involved or interested in arbitration in China.?? From the Foreword by Gabrielle Kaufmann-Kohler
