The International Arbitration Institute publishes timely research in the area of International Arbitration.
Publications of the Institute
The Institute recently distributed a collection of essays by young scholars in international arbitration, the first in a series of publications by the Institute.
The second publication will be overseen by visiting professor Andres Jana, partner at Bofil Mir & Alvarez Jana in Santiago, who will conduct an in-depth study of the UNCITRAL Model Law and its “revolutionary” effect on international arbitration in Latin America.
Another publication of the Institute will feature students’ essays on the Young ICCA and Young Arbitration Practitioners (YAP) events at the occasion of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) Congress held in Miami in 2014. The topics will include:
- “State Responsibility and Actions Against Wrongful Annulments and Enforcements;”
- “Pemex Case Note and Its Appropriateness under Art. V. of the New York Convention;”
- “Use of Procedure under Art III of the New York Convention III of the New York Convention to Refuse Enforcement in the U.S. and India;”
- “Definition of Public Policy under International Law, Due Process and Order Public;”
- “Human Rights Violations and Recourse under Treaty Arbitration.”
Research Assistant, Kristina Klykova, is writing her Ph.D. on arbitral decision-making based on Mentschikoff’s experiment with Leiden University.
Publications of Arbitration Faculty
Professor Martin Hunter has recently released the 6th Edition of his book Redfern and Hunter on International Arbitration.
Director of the Institute, Marike Paulsson, is currently working on her upcoming treatise, “The 1958 New York Convention in Action” and on her Ph.D. with Leiden University.
Under the guidance of top-notch faculty, students enrolled in the International Arbitration LL.M. Program work on papers on current issues in the field.
For instance, the Advanced Arbitration Seminar taught by Professor Jan Paulsson is intended for students who are ready to confront the challenge of writing a paper of genuinely publishable quality.
Further, students of Marike Paulsson’s New York Convention & Legal Theory Seminar published their papers in Kluwer Arbitration Blog, Young ICCA Blog, Asian Dispute Review and European Dispute Review. The recent example is the publication of the paper co-authored by Marike Paulsson, Wu Mengqiu, and Wu Guanhua in Asian Dispute Review in January 2016 on the Recent Issues of the Implementation of the New York Convention in China.
Other writing opportunities include various U.S. and international law journals and reviews with an international arbitration focus, as well as Miami Law’s two internationally-oriented law reviews.
Examples of recent graduates who have published articles in leading law journals include Nikolaos Tsolakidis, LL.M.'13, who published two articles on investment arbitration in the Transnational Dispute Management (TDM)Journal, as well as Patrick Miller, J.D. '10 and Anna Tumpovskiy, LL.M. '10, who both published articles in The International Law Quarterly, a publication of the International Law Section of the Florida Bar, which is becoming a leading journal in all areas of international law. In addition, our 2013 International Arbitration LL.M. graduates published individual articles on various international arbitration in Young Scholars in International Arbitration, a collection of essays published by Miami Law’s International Arbitration Institute (IAI), which was prepared in conjunction with the 2014 International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) Congress held in Miami.
