Congratulations to our own Rick Bales and to Katherine van Wezel Stone (UCLA) whose second edition of Arbitration Law comes out at the beginning of November. From Foundation Press' page,
This casebook presents a comprehensive treatment of the legal issues involved in arbitration. The first four chapters address issues that arise in private arbitration, that is, arbitration that is the product of an agreement between two contracting parties. The last chapter addresses issues that arise in court-ordered arbitration. Together they will give the student a thorough and up-to-date understanding of arbitration law and provide a foundation for legal practice, whether in alternative dispute resolution or in the civil justice system. Extensive notes following each case provide supplementary materials and introduce topics for discussion.
It's a great book, so get it while it's hot!
