The 27th Edition of the AAA Yearbook on Arbitration and the Law continues the tradition of providing thoughtful commentary and guidance on legal developments that have taken place in the field of Alternative Disptue Resolution (ADR). These developments continue to have a significant impact on the way that disputes are resolved both domestically and internationally.
Among other topics, the circumstances in which arbitrators can be disqualified, and various courts' analysis of the standard to be applied where allegations of an arbitrator's evident partiality have been raised, are presented and discussed. The appropriate division of authority between arbitrators and courts on issues involving the enforcement of arbitration agreements also receives important attention in this edition of the AAA Yearbook, as do many of the issues that arise relating to barriers to the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards, removal and waiver of removal under the New York Convention, and other aspects unique to international arbitration.
Readers will also find useful a section devoted to cases from state and federal courts around the country that discuss and analyze the AAA's various arbitration rules.
The thorough coverage in the AAA Yearbook of these matters, in addition to many others, will serve as a valuable source of information to practitioners, academics, arbitrators, and those with an interest in ADR.
