Professor Schmitz publishes in Canadian arbitration journal

Professor Amy J. Schmitz published a new article, “Considering Uber Technologies Inc v Heller Under US Law,” 1 Can. J. Com. Arb. 163 (2021), a peer-reviewed arbitration journal based in Canada. In this article, Professor Schmitz engages in comparative analysis of the unconscionability doctrine under Canadian vs. United States law using the Uber Technologies Inc v Heller case, which was recently decided by the Canadian Supreme Court. The case made headlines in holding the arbitration clause in Canadian Uber-drivers’ contracts unconscionable and unenforceable. The article also engages a larger debate about the prevalence of pre-dispute arbitration clauses in contexts where they cut off access to class relief.
