What is arbitration? This volume provides a novel theoretical examination of the concept of arbitration, attempting to answer fundamental questions which have rarely been addressed systematically in English. It exlores the place of arbitration in the legal process, offering a challenging, yet accessible overview of the field and its theoretical underpinnings and contending that arbitration is important enough to be understood in its own terms, as a sui generis feature of social life. Why do individuals, companies, and States choose to go to arbitration rather than through litigation? Arbitraton can offer increased flexibility and confidentiality, and provides the parties with the opportunity to select the arbitrators. But what makes them want to confide in an arbitrator rather than use the more traditional legal mechanisms for settling disputes? This volume explores what the parties can expect of an arbitrator, and whether and how the conduct of an arbitrator might be questioned and under what authority. It examines the ethical challenges to arbitral authority and and its moral hazards, evaluating the promises and dangers of self-contained systems of decision-making and compliance.

Contract Law and Its Application, Ninth Edition introduces first year law students to common law reasoning, legal interpretation, lawyering and legal institutions, through basic American contract law, presented in relatively brief free-standing units that may be sequenced as the instructor prefers. It focuses on contract interpretation as a primary means to resolve a wide range of doctrinal and practical contract problems. The Ninth Edition's core remains the full traditional canon of American contract law: the classic common law cases, UCC Article 2 (Sales) and the Restatement, Second, Contracts, in each case with updated and current questions and notes emphasizing the application of that doctrine in the 21st century. The Ninth Edition highlights the expanding use of arbitration clauses in both commercial and consumer contracts, and the ferment in restitution law reflected in recent academic work and the promulgation of the Restatement, Third, Restitution. In addition, the Ninth Edition includes a new Appendix II providing easy reference to all relevant sections of the Restatement, Second, Contracts, and carries forward the Eighth Edition's Appendix I with the relevant sections of the UCC, thus obviating students' need for a statutory supplement. As with prior editions, the Ninth Edition includes comparative law materials, indicating alternative approaches to common problems in other legal systems.
