Contract Law in International Commercial Arbitration

Every dispute giving rise to a commercial arbitration arises out of a contract and calls for the tribunal to apply and interpret such contract. How do arbitrators deal with contract issues? Taught by a foremost contract law academic with significant arbitration experience, this course reviews topics that are recurrent before arbitral tribunals, including interpretation, default and termination, liability, waivers and limitations of liability, force majeure and change circumstances, and damages.
