Abstract

The importance of American international arbitration law has grown in recent decades. Arbitration is widely used as a means of resolving transnational disputes involving American parties, albeit more widely for some types of contracts than others. The United States is frequently chosen as a situs for international arbitration proceedings, and American lawyers regularly appear as counsel and serve as arbitrators. This paper provides an overview of the law governing international arbitration in the United States. It first describes the treaties and statutes that govern international arbitration in the U.S. It then provides an overview of U.S. law as it applies to enforcing the arbitration agreement, to the conduct of the arbitration proceeding, and to enforcing the arbitration award.

Keywords: Arbitration, Dispute Resolution, Contracts
