This course has the purpose of linking classroom discussion and analysis of arbitration, and related dispute resolution techniques with opportunities for students to participate and observe arbitration cases conducted under the auspices of the Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution. The course is designed to be an advanced seminar for ILR graduate and undergraduate and Cornell law students who have a serious interest in working in arbitration, mediation, or other third-party procedures. Classroom discussions and readings will focus on labor arbitration (i.e., the use of arbitration in unionized settings) and employment arbitration (i.e., the use of arbitration in cases involving nonunion employees). Several sessions of the course will be devoted to the use of dispute resolution in other arenas, including commercial and securities disputes. The effectiveness of arbitration as techniques for resolving conflict will be assessed and lessons will be drawn about the best practices used by neutrals, advocates and parties.
