Outsourcing justice: the rise of modern arbitration laws in America / Imre Stephen Szalai. Carolina Academic Press, 2013.

KF9085.S98 2013


Outsourcing Justice is a critique of the current legal treatment of the Federal Arbitration Act.  Most of this book is an extensive historical study of the development of arbitration law in the United States, and is likely to be both interesting and useful to anyone wishing to understand modern arbitration law.  The author also provides food for thought by making an argument that arbitration law should be reformed so as to be restricted to resolving disputes between businesses, rather than also addressing employment and consumer conflicts as is the case today.







Regulatory competition in contract law and dispute resolution / Horst Eidenmüller, ed. Hart Publishing, 2013.

K3943.R448 2013


Regulatory Competition in Contract Law and Dispute Resolution is a collection of papers and comments written for an international academic conference on contract law and dispute resolution.  These essays address the legal and economic theories behind concepts such as choice of law, the respective merits of litigation and arbitration, intellectual property, bankruptcy, standard form contracts and more.  This collection provides balance by including peer comments written in response to papers presented at the conference itself.
