Professor Publishes Empirical Study on International Commercial Mediation

In late 2014, Professor S.I. Strong conducted the first large-scale empirical study focusing on international commercial mediation. The research was generated to assist delegates to the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) as they considered whether to undertake a new project concerning the enforcement of settlement agreements arising out of international commercial mediation. That project is now well underway at the U.N., and the final results of Professor Strong’s study have been published in article form as “Realizing Rationality: An Empirical Assessment of International Commercial Mediation,” 73 Washington and Lee Law Review 1973 (2016).
