For those unfamiliar with arbitration, a secondary source is a good way to get started. Consider consulting a preeminent treatise such as:
- ADR & the Law, by the American Arbitration Association (2005). Treatise Collection, KF9085.A15 A52
- International Commercial Arbitration, by Gary B. Born, 2d Ed. Treatise Collection K2400 .B673 2014 & Westlaw
- Domke on Commercial Arbitration, by Martin Domke, 3rd Ed. Treatise Collection, KF9085 .D6 & Westlaw
Periodicals and Books are also a good place to start.
The Uniform Arbitration Act of 1956, was passed by a number of states including Florida. In 2000 the uniform law was revised and is now known as the Revised Uniform Arbitration Act (RUAA) which has also been adopted by a number of states. The RUAA is available on both Westlaw & Lexis. The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law also developed a Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration.
