    • International arbitration is a means by which international disputes can be definitively resolved, pursuant to the parties’ agreement, by independent, non-governmental decision makers, in decisions that are binding on the parties and enforceable in national courts.

      This course provides a rigorous introduction to the field of international commercial arbitration, which involves a complex framework of international rules and institutions that provide a neutral, expert and durable means for resolving difficult transnational problems. The course will deal with the internationalist elements of the subject matter, but will also examine international commercial arbitration from a Chinese perspective. Students can expect to review both foreign and Chinese statutes and case law on the subject. The course will also cover some cutting edge subjects, such as online arbitration and sport arbitration.

      The course will comprise of ten
      topics: (1) an introduction to the field of international commercial arbitration; (2) the agreement to arbitrate; (3) the arbitrators; (4) applicable laws; (5) jurisdiction of arbitral tribunal; (6) the arbitration process; (7) judicial supervision; (8) the arbitral award; (9) online arbitration; and (10) sport arbitration.

      This course does not address the litigation of disputes arising out of international business transactions before national courts. It also is not a course about foreign trade or the WTO.


      This course will meet for three hours each week in the spring or fall semester. This is a two unit course. Class attendance and participation are essential.

      The course textbook is available for download on the class Courseware website. It is used for all required readings, except those indicated otherwise on the syllabus and available on Courseware. In addition to assigning reading from the textbook most weeks, Dr. Wei Gao may also assign additional reading available on Courseware.
