International commercial arbitration advocacy :
ISBN: 9781632813114 OCLC: 903936599

Authored by H. Roderic Heard, Susan L. Walker and the late Honorable John W. Cooley, International Commercial Arbitration Advocacy is the first book of its kind to offer practical advice for American trial lawyers on advocacy in international arbitration. Unlike arbitration treatises, which typically are written from the perspective of the arbitrator, International Commercial Arbitration Advocacy explains how experienced trial lawyers can tailor their advocacy skills to be more persuasive and ultimately successful in the international arbitration arena.ReviewsInternational Commercial Arbitration Advocacy is impressive in its candor and practical value (and format). It certainly lives up to its goal of internationalizing the American practitioner through encouraging guidance, rather than being preachy or dictatorial. Hats off to the authors.-Michael Mcllwrath, Associate GC - Litigation, GE Oil& Gas, Florence, Italy

The Arbitrator's Handbook
ISBN: 9781632814319 OCLC: 903937039

The Arbitrator's Handbook offers a full range of features geared to assist the arbitrator in performing his or her duties. Chapter One provides basic information on the nature of arbitration, including a description of its stages and types, and its benefits and limitations. Cooley defines the role, authority, and ethics requirements of the arbitrator. Chapter Two describes the prehearing functions and duties of the arbitrator, focusing on the time of initiation of the arbitration as well as the preparation stage. Chapter Three focuses on the arbitrator's hearing functions and duties. It covers such topics as the arbitrator's opening statement, handling preliminary matters, a review of basic rules of evidence, and making rulings on motions and objections. Chapter Four, on the arbitrator's post-hearing functions and duties, addresses such topics as ruling on post hearing motions, deciding the merits of the case, and drafting the award and the opinion supporting the award. In addition, tables and checklists are included in the appendices for key actions at critical stages of the arbitration process. The appendix also contains sample arbitration forms and rules from leading dispute resolution organizations, making this the most comprehensive text available for hands-on arbitration instruction.
