Javier Beltran was shocked when an arbitrator ruled that he owed $10,000 on a $2,500 loan. The money had helped him finance his brother's funeral expenses. But after failing to repay the debt promptly, Mr. Beltran had high interest charges, late fees, and attorneys' fees tacked onto the bill. When he signed the contract in 2000, Beltran was unaware that he'd agreed to have a private third party settle any disputes. In fact, when his case was heard, and the arbitrator ruled against him, Mr. Beltran wasn't even there, nor did he have anyone representing him. "I still do not know what arbitration is," said ...

As with arbitration generally, international arbitration is a creature of contract , i.e., the parties' decision to submit disputes to binding resolution by one or more arbitrators selected by or on behalf of the parties and applying adjudicatory procedures, usually by including a provision for the arbitration of future disputes in their contract. The practice of international arbitration has developed so as to allow parties from different legal and cultural backgrounds to resolve their ...

Overview of the AIA B101-2007 by Mark Odom
When the AIA addressed concerns in 1997 of users of the Standard Form of Agreement Between Owners and Architects, it sought to follow the trend at that time among architects to provide a specialized scope of services for their owner clients. As a result, the existing form contract, B141-1987, was remade into a two-part document to allow flexibility in addressing the needs of those users providing specialty architectural services. The new forms consisted of B141-1997, Part 1, containing the basic terms of the agreement, and B141-1997, Part 2, which described the scope of the architect’s services for the project. In its 2007 ... market research, surveys and trends
The New Bahrain Arbitration Law and the Bahrain “Free Arbitration ...
New arbitration legislation enacted by the Kingdom of Bahrain on July 2, 2009 makes it the first country in the world to create the equivalent of a free trade zone for arbitration. That legislation, Legislative Decree No. 30 (The Decree), gives parties to an agreement calling for international arbitration the option of holding the arbitration in Bahrain without concern that the courts of Bahrain might interfere with, or set aside, the resulting award, as long as the parties seek to enforce the award only in another country. The result is the creation of what this article will call the Bahrain “Free Arbitration Zone.” market research, surveys and trends

Such agreements appear frequently as a condition of some economic relationship, most problematically employment, consumer purchases, or health care. 1 Employers and businesses adopt adhesive arbitration clauses as a means to manage the risk of litigation and perceived “runaway” jury awards. 2 Professor Michael LeRoy, together with his colleague Professor Peter Feuille, has made a series of important empirical and ...

What is the implication of jurisdiction clause in cross-border ...
Each country handles jurisdictional issues differently from others. However, within the EU, each country's courts will (in most circumstances) acknowledge an exclusive jurisdiction clause giving another country's courts jurisdiction over a dispute, and therefore decline to exercise jurisdiction over a case. It's also possible to give non-exclusive jurisdiction, allowing potentially more than one court to have jurisdiction. Outside the EU, the position may be different. In any event, it's necessary to consider the legal and commercial issues on a case-by-case basis. In some cases it may not be in the ...
