Some Reflections On The “New Law Of The Sea”, Philippe Gautier Dec 2022

Some Reflections On The “New Law Of The Sea”, Philippe Gautier

International Law Studies

The fortieth anniversary of the opening for signature of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea provides an opportunity to offer some reflections on the “new law of the sea”; that is, the comprehensive set of rules that was the result of an unprecedented multilateral negotiation process: the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (1973–1982). The focus of this article is on the adjudication of sea-related disputes in the “new law of the sea.” In an international legal order where access to a judge or an arbitrator requires the consent of both parties to …

Using Real Practice Systems Resources In Practice, John M. Lande Dec 2022

Using Real Practice Systems Resources In Practice, John M. Lande

Faculty Blogs

This post describes how mediators can use ideas and materials from the Real Practice Systems Project to better understand and improve their own mediation systems. Mediators’ practice systems are the combination of factors affecting what they do before, during, and after mediation sessions. These systems include their routine procedures and strategies for dealing with recurring challenging situations. Trainers and mediation program administrators can use this to help mediators in their programs.


Resources For Using Real Practice Systems Materials In Teaching, John Lande Dec 2022

Resources For Using Real Practice Systems Materials In Teaching, John Lande

Faculty Blogs

This post describes how faculty can use ideas and materials from the Real Practice Systems Project to help students get realistic understandings of practice. Although the project has generally focused on the systems that mediators develop and use, it can be adapted to understand the perspectives of lawyers acting as advocates in mediation, negotiators, and in legal practice generally. In addition to requiring or recommending that students read publications about real practice systems, faculty could assign students to write papers such as (1) a Stone Soup interview of a practitioner, (2) a description of students’ actual system in simulated or …

The Role Of Investment Treaties And Investor–State Dispute Settlement (Isds) In Renewable Energy Investments, Ladan Mehranvar, Sunayana Sasmal Dec 2022

The Role Of Investment Treaties And Investor–State Dispute Settlement (Isds) In Renewable Energy Investments, Ladan Mehranvar, Sunayana Sasmal

Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment

Achieving our global goals of universal access to clean energy and averting a climate crisis will require a mass scale-up of investments in renewable energy infrastructure, redirecting capital from carbon intensive energy and transport systems. The International Renewable Energy Agency estimates that the transformation of the energy system alone will need cumulative investments to reach USD 110 trillion by 2050 to keep the rise in global temperatures to well below 2°C and towards 1.5°C during this century. Of that amount, over 80% will need to be invested in renewables, energy efficiency, end-use electrification, and power grids and flexibility.

The private …


International Commercial Mediation And Dispute Resolution Contracts, Nadja Alexander, Natasha Tunkel Dec 2022

International Commercial Mediation And Dispute Resolution Contracts, Nadja Alexander, Natasha Tunkel

Research Collection Yong Pung How School Of Law

Every transaction has the potential to go wrong and international commercial contracts are not spared this plight. It is when an international commercial contract fails – irrespective of the reasons, that the impact of different legal and cultural backgrounds of the parties come to light. The obvious venue for commercial disputes to be decided is generally understood to be in court (litigation)2 or before an arbitral tribunal (arbitration)3. However, there are numerous other alternative dispute mechanisms4 available to parties that are less well known and also deserve consideration; not least because they offer parties methods of resolving the dispute between …

Arbitration In Securities Exchange Trading Contracts Concluded Between The Financial Intermediary And The Investor In Light Of The Uae Law, Ramzi Madi Dr., Samer Al-Maaytah

مجلة جامعة الإمارات للبحوث القانونية UAEU LAW JOURNAL

With the growing role of financial brokers in securities exchange trading operations in stock markets and their monopoly of buying and selling securities for the account of investors in the financial markets, this has led to the emergence of many disputes between financial brokers and their clients resulting from buying and selling orders for the purpose of concluding trading operations issued by the investor for financial intermediate.

Because of the technical nature of securities exchange trading operations, many countries have sought to find appropriate means to settle such disputes of a special nature, and found that arbitration is one of …


The Arbitration Of Interim Relief In Terms Of Comparative And Emirati Law, Prof. Sayed Mahmoud Ahmed, Mahmoud Fayyad Dr. Nov 2022

The Arbitration Of Interim Relief In Terms Of Comparative And Emirati Law, Prof. Sayed Mahmoud Ahmed, Mahmoud Fayyad Dr.

مجلة جامعة الإمارات للبحوث القانونية UAEU LAW JOURNAL

The interim protection for legal rights is one of the methods of judicial protection that avoids the risk of delay in the implementation of the law and in providing objective protection for these rights and centers, as well as to preserve them from this risk by taking urgent, temporary or conservative measures by issuing judgments or orders. Therefore, the aim of this research is to answer the following questions: does the arbitrator have the right to consider interim requests to achieve this protection, and if yes what is the legal base of this authority? What are the authorities of the …

Book Review: Mediation Ethics: A Practitioner's Guide Edited By Omer Shapira Ed, Dorcas Quek Anderson Nov 2022

Book Review: Mediation Ethics: A Practitioner's Guide Edited By Omer Shapira Ed, Dorcas Quek Anderson

Research Collection Yong Pung How School Of Law

A review of the book Mediation ethics: A practitioner's guide, edited by Omer Shapira. Mediation ethics have been consistently featured in mediation training courses and mediation ethical principles have also been encapsulated in mediation providers’ codes of conduct for mediators. However, mediation ethics have probably inspired fewer publications and academic discussions than the popular topic of mediation skills. It is thus timely that Shapira has edited this publication focusing on mediation ethics. Published in 2021, this collection of reflections on mediation ethics has been written primarily for the American mediation profession, with frequent references made to the US Model Standards …


Shifting The Central Paradigm To Dispute System Design, John Lande Nov 2022

Shifting The Central Paradigm To Dispute System Design, John Lande

Faculty Blogs

This post argues that instead of identifying our field as ADR, we should use dispute system design as our central theoretical framework. Although people often think of DSD as being used only in large organizations, individuals and small practice groups also handle streams of cases and can use these principles and techniques to improve their case management and dispute resolution procedures. DSD is about tailoring dispute systems to the needs of stakeholders, especially disputing parties. Good designs fit the stakeholders’ context and culture so that the dispute processes produce as much satisfaction of the parties’ procedural and substantive goals as …


Houston, We Have A Problem In The Dispute Resolution Field, John M. Lande Oct 2022

Houston, We Have A Problem In The Dispute Resolution Field, John M. Lande

Faculty Blogs

Parties are supposed to actively participate in mediation (and other dispute resolution processes to some extent), and thus they need to understand what experts are saying. Lawyers representing clients in mediation especially need to understand the process to fulfill their ethical responsibility of competence. And certainly mediators should understand basic concepts of mediation.


Boba Fett, Bounty Hunters, And The Supreme Court’S Viking River Decision: A New Hope, Imre S. Szalai Oct 2022

Boba Fett, Bounty Hunters, And The Supreme Court’S Viking River Decision: A New Hope, Imre S. Szalai

Washington and Lee Law Review Online

The United States Supreme Court recently issued a fractured decision in Viking River Cruises, Inc. v. Moriana, 142 S. Ct. 1906 (June 15, 2022), a classic David v. Goliath clash between a worker and employer. Can arbitration agreements be used to eliminate group or representative actions brought against employers, where the plaintiff worker is serving as a bounty hunter for the State? Although the majority clearly holds that a worker’s individual claims must be sent to arbitration pursuant to a predispute arbitration agreement, the splintered opinions leave some uncertainty regarding what happens to the representative claims of the other …

The Amazing Carrie Menkel-Meadow And What Wins When Passions Collide, Lela Porter Love Oct 2022

The Amazing Carrie Menkel-Meadow And What Wins When Passions Collide, Lela Porter Love

Texas A&M Law Review

Carrie Menkel-Meadow (sometimes referred to as “Carrie” herein) is famous in the dispute resolution world as one of the field’s founders. Her prolific writing on dispute resolution—negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and the variants of these major processes—evidences an unrivaled passion for the subject. A renaissance thinker, her intellectual explorations also extend to other areas such as women’s rights and restorative justice for victims of egregious wrongs.

Her multiple passions sometimes create dynamic tensions. For example, what happens if mediation norms threaten a woman’s rights? Or if mediators divert the focus of a dispute resolution process to the future, neglecting a horrific …


Feminist Legal Theory And #Metoo: Revisiting Tarana Burke’S Vision Of Empowerment Through Empathy, Penelope E. Andrews Oct 2022

Feminist Legal Theory And #Metoo: Revisiting Tarana Burke’S Vision Of Empowerment Through Empathy, Penelope E. Andrews

Texas A&M Law Review

It is my purpose to ground this Article in ubuntu and the politics of radical love as applied to the goals of #MeToo and its pursuit of redress for victims of sexual harms. Part II explores the convergences and divergences of #MeToo with feminist campaigns of an earlier era. Part III questions whether a renewed quest for gender equality, largely spawned by a Twitter/social media campaign, may lead to sustainable change built on notions of empathy and restorative justice, which was the vision espoused by Carrie in her work and which influenced Tarana Burke when she founded #MeToo. Part IV …


Ethical Negotiation And Postcapitalist Politics: An Essay For Carrie, Amy J. Cohen Oct 2022

Ethical Negotiation And Postcapitalist Politics: An Essay For Carrie, Amy J. Cohen

Texas A&M Law Review

In a 1983 article, Legal Negotiation: A Study of Strategies in Search of a Theory, Carrie Menkel-Meadow took stock of what was motivating a diverse range of scholars to want to reimagine negotiation theory. She described these negotiation scholars as shaped by the exigencies of their own political moments. Some were lawyers concerned about too much litigation of an unsatisfying quality. Many, however, were concerned more broadly about “the general level of hostility in the world,” even haunted by the possibility that nuclear weapons could destroy all of humanity. Negotiation scholars included “[e]conomists and game theorists . . . concerned …


Choices: The Many Routes To Justice And Peace With Dispute Resolution, Ethics, And Feminism, Carrie Menkel-Meadow Oct 2022

Choices: The Many Routes To Justice And Peace With Dispute Resolution, Ethics, And Feminism, Carrie Menkel-Meadow

Texas A&M Law Review

As Yogi Berra once said, “When you come to a fork in the road. . . . take it[!]” Our lives present us all with choices—personal and professional. My professional life has been filled with efforts to create more choices of process and ethical and political commitments to seek a more just world. I began as a poverty and civil rights lawyer and sought effective and creative ways to solve problems, notably when court-based solutions were too “brittle” and binary and did not solve the underlying problem. I have looked at legal problem solving through the lens of interdisciplinary approaches …


Process Pluralism In The Post-Covid Dispute Resolution Landscape, Orna Rabinovich-Einy Oct 2022

Process Pluralism In The Post-Covid Dispute Resolution Landscape, Orna Rabinovich-Einy

Texas A&M Law Review

Among her numerous contributions as a founder of the field, Professor Menkel-Meadow coined and developed the term “process pluralism,” one of the most influential concepts in the dispute resolution arena. Process pluralism serves both as a descriptive lens in observing the dispute resolution landscape and as a normative prism through which various procedural schemes can be evaluated and procedural reform can be devised.

In the last few years process pluralism has gained new meaning as diversity in procedural avenues increasingly encompassed a broader range of mediums. Initially, such additional procedural choices existed mainly in written asynchronous form, but with the …


Carrie Menkel-Meadow: Dispute Resolution In A Feminist Voice, Andrea Kupfer Schneider Oct 2022

Carrie Menkel-Meadow: Dispute Resolution In A Feminist Voice, Andrea Kupfer Schneider

Texas A&M Law Review

The presence of women in the law has changed the law’s substance, practice, and process. Carrie Menkel-Meadow, whose scholarship centers on this theme, is one such revolutionary woman.

Professor Menkel-Meadow, who I am proud to call my colleague, co-author, and friend (hereinafter referred to as Carrie), began her career in 1977 with a series of simple questions that sparked a breathtaking body of work. Carrie probed the depth of male domination in the realm of law and wondered what changes female representation might engender. In particular, she focused her inquiry on the value orientation each respective gender might bring to …


It’S In The “Telling” (By Asking): A Passover Analogy To Explain The Enduring Foundational Nature Of Carrie Menkel-Meadow’S Dispute Resolution Scholarship, James R. Coben Oct 2022

It’S In The “Telling” (By Asking): A Passover Analogy To Explain The Enduring Foundational Nature Of Carrie Menkel-Meadow’S Dispute Resolution Scholarship, James R. Coben

Texas A&M Law Review

One true measure of whether ideas are “foundational” is whether they will resonate with future generations. Judaism, one of the world’s oldest religions, offers an annual ritual—the Passover Seder—that exemplifies success in passing down foundational ideas. That ritual, among other things, posits that to tell an enduring story, it must be told in ways that inspire many different kinds of people—with widely disparate motivations, perspectives, and abilities—to engage with, relate to, and understand the story. This Essay asserts that Carrie Menkel-Meadow’s dispute resolution scholarship is very much a successful “telling” with many characteristics remarkably similar to the Passover Seder. And …


Carrie Menkel-Meadow: Leading Us Toward Justice And Peace, Jean R. Sternlight Oct 2022

Carrie Menkel-Meadow: Leading Us Toward Justice And Peace, Jean R. Sternlight

Texas A&M Law Review

This Essay explores how Carrie Menkel-Meadow’s life and work have both highlighted the path of “And”—showing and explaining that it is not only possible but also desirable to seek justice as well as peace, to be both activist and neutral. Of course, tensions will remain. Regarding particular issues in specific moments we all must decide which path we can and should take. Which activism is best, and which goes too far? With whom can we or should we negotiate, and when should we instead say, “I can’t negotiate with this person or group”? When should we talk and listen, and …


Pluralistic Professionalisms: Religious Identity, Excluded Voice, And A Toolkit For The Periphery, Swethaa S. Ballakrishnen Oct 2022

Pluralistic Professionalisms: Religious Identity, Excluded Voice, And A Toolkit For The Periphery, Swethaa S. Ballakrishnen

Texas A&M Law Review

Assimilation of new entrants into the legal profession has been a signature strain of Carrie Menkel-Meadow’s research. Even if the empirical particularities have since evolved, her pathbreaking research on women lawyers and gendered lawyering processes remain prime examples of socio-legal work on lawyers with important theoretical extensions. For example, in Portia in a Different Voice, her now classic piece from 1985, Menkel-Meadow analyzes how numbers alone are insufficient indicia of feminization within the legal profession. Beyond the description of the state of the legal profession at the time of writing, her argument that we should pay attention to what lawyers …

Non-Satisfaction Of Pre-Arbitration Requirements: Moving Away From Conditions Precedent Towards The Admissibility Of A Claim – Nwa V Nvf, Darius Chan, Joel Soon Oct 2022

Non-Satisfaction Of Pre-Arbitration Requirements: Moving Away From Conditions Precedent Towards The Admissibility Of A Claim – Nwa V Nvf, Darius Chan, Joel Soon

Research Collection Yong Pung How School Of Law

In earlier cases, the non-satisfaction of pre-arbitration requirements has been analysed by the Singapore and English courts by reference to the issue of conditions precedent. It was assumed without argument that, if a requirement was construed as a condition precedent, the failure to satisfy that requirement would deprive the tribunal of jurisdiction. More recently, English and Hong Kong case law has focused on a different issue, asking whether the failure to meet the pre-arbitration requirement affects the tribunal’s jurisdiction or the admissibility of the claim. This case note analyses whether the Singapore courts should follow suit.
