Course synopsis:
Over the past few years arbitration has become topical for various reasons. But what is arbitration and what does arbitration represent are not easy questions to answer. Arbitration in essence is an alternative mode of resolving a legal dispute. As such arbitration strives to promote competing characteristics like confidentiality and swiftness to edge past the orthodox judicial system. There are currently two types of arbitration : domestic arbitration and international arbitration.  Arbitration is private justice thus necessitating key adjustments from the approach to court litigation. The present lecture seeks simply to introduce the above aspects.
