In this 1987 article, Professor Stipanowich extensively analyzes data from an unprecedented broad-based survey on contract-based commercial arbitration in the United States. The study, based on a survey by the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry, provides considerable insight into experiences and perceptions of American attorneys regarding arbitration and litigation of construction and engineering disputes. It also summarizes and compares data developed in earlier studies of arbitration practice and procedure and suggests possible new directions for arbitration procedures.
