Prof. S.I. Strong recently had several new articles published in the United States and Europe.
The first item, Cross-Border Collective Redress and Individual Participatory Rights: Quo Vadis?,32 Civil Justice Quarterly 508 (2013), appeared in England’s leading journal on civil procedure and addressed the problems that arise under the Brussels I Regulation, the European Union’s primary legislation on choice of courts and jurisdiction, when mass claims are asserted across European borders.
The second piece, Discovery Under 28 U.S.C. §1782: Distinguishing International Commercial Arbitration and International Investment Arbitration, 1 Stanford Journal of Complex Litigation 295 (2013), appeared in the inaugural issue of the journal and arose out of a symposium at Stanford University Law School concerning the decades-long, multibillion dollar legal dispute between Chevron Corporation and Ecuador relating to damage to the Ecuadorian environment dating back to the 1960s-1990s.
The final piece, Increasing Legalism in International Commercial Arbitration: A New Theory of Causes, A New Approach to Cures, 7 World Arbitration and Mediation Review 117 (2013), considers why international commercial arbitration has become increasingly legalistic in recent years. The article is part of a symposium issue dealing with changes in the international arbitral regime over the last ten to twenty years.
