The French Law on International Commercial Arbitration

The French arbitration law, tradition and culture are not only among the most important frameworks for international commercial arbitration today, because Paris is a leading place for international arbitration; they are also among the intellectual factors that most profoundly shaped the world of arbitration as we know it today. This course introduces the students to that French heritage and discusses today’s international commercial arbitration law and practice in France.
