Who's Watching Out For The Children - Making Child Custody Determinable By Binding Arbitration - Dick V. Dick, Barbara E. Wilson

"Many is the custody case which almost seems to outlive the parents .... To remedy this problem, many members of the legal profession advocate greater utilization of arbitration to include determination of child custody.' As state courts struggle to incorporate and interpret the Uniform Arbitration Act ("UAA") into child custody case law, the Dick case stands as the latest decision demonstrating the advantages and pitfalls of using binding arbitration to resolve custody disputes.

Sica: The First Twenty Years, Constantine N. Katsoris

Fordham Urban Law Journal

This Article provides a broad overview of the topic of securities arbitration. It expresses the views of litigants from both sides of the spectrum.

Bootstrapping And Slouching Toward Gomorrah: Arbitral Infatuation And The Decline Of Consent, Jeffrey W. Stempel

Scholarly Works

Although many modern statutes and claims did not exist in 1791, the Amendment has been interpreted to require a jury trial of statutory claims seeking monetary damages, the classic form of legal relief, so long as there is a relatively apt analogy between the modern statutory ...


Panacea Or Corporate Tool?: Debunking The Supreme Court's Preference For Binding Arbitration, Jean R. Sternlight Jan 1996

Panacea Or Corporate Tool?: Debunking The Supreme Court's Preference For Binding Arbitration, Jean R. Sternlight

Scholarly Works

This article examines the increasing use of contracts of adhesion in which companies require consumers, employees, franchisees and other "little guys" to submit disputes with the company to binding arbitration. The article argues that the Supreme Court's current preference for such agreements is not statutorily well-founded. Specifically, it contends that the Federal Arbitration Act was not intended to make such agreements binding on unknowing consumers or employees. Turning next to policy analysis, the article asserts that the Supreme Court has erred in expressing a preference for binding arbitration in cases where such arbitration was not knowingly and voluntarily accepted ...

Arbitration: Back To The Future, Theodore J. St. Antoine

Other Publications

A strong new ideological current is sweeping through much of the Western World. At one extreme it manifests itself as a deep distrust of big government. In more modest form, it is a sense of skepticism or disillusionment about the capacity of big government to deal effectively with the problems confronting our society. In continental Europe today there is much talk of the principle of "subsidiarity," the notion that social and economic ills should be treated at the lowest level feasible, usually the level closest to the people directly affected. In the United States there is much talk of "privatization ...
