First Week Assignments:
Unless otherwise indicated, all assignments refer to ARBITRATION: THEORY, PRACTICE AND LAW by Folberg, Golann, Stipanowich & Kloppenberg (Custom Edition 2016), which you need to buy from the bookstore or online.   Additional materials will be posted on Canvas.  [Note, it is possible the schedule and assignments may be adjusted due to changing circumstances.]
 
**NOTE: I ask you to “be prepared” for all Questions and Problems but we will not have time to tackle it all!  However, I have kept the reading fairly light and considering the Questions and Problems is good practice as you study and prepare for the final!  Also, I hope you will find it interesting—as there are thorny legal issues and policy considerations in Arbitration! Still, please understand that we will not actually discuss all these Problems and Questions during class meetings.
 
1.      Introducing the Course – 1/19
READ CHAPTER 17 A. & most of B.  (PP. 543-554) and be prepared to discuss Prob. 1 on pp. 553-54. Also, bring in an arbitration clause to the Zoom meeting – check your own contracts!
  • Introduction to the class
  • Prob. 1
 2.       Arbitration vs. Other Dispute Resolution Tools – 1/21
READ Chapter 17 B and C (PP. 554-556) and be prepared to discuss all Questions included therein. We also will play The Arbitration Game.
  
Canvas:  Be sure to connect with the site on Canvas for Arbitration! The class Zoom links are included on Canvas and already populated in the calendar!!
 
Let me know if you have questions! I am psyched to teach you all!
