Originally from Journal of American Arbitration (JAA)
The Journal of American Arbitration is published by the Tulane Arbitration Institute and the Center for Arbitration and Mediation at the Penn State Dickinson School of Law. The Journal provides information and commentary on developments in domestic U.S. arbitration law. Arbitration has expanded enormously in domestic practice during the last several years. The U.S. Supreme Court has made arbitration the remedy of choice in a wide variety of fields--from commercial matters to consumer disputes of all kinds to securities and employment. Legal professionals cannot ignore the radical changes in the role and function of arbitration. The Journal identifies fundamental developments and provides a thorough and useful practical commentary on them. It features contributions by distinguished practitioners and academic lawyers.
