This course has been designed to ensure deep and practical understanding of Arbitration laws based on case discussions. This course should preferably be taken along with the Arbitration Step by Step, 2nd Edition course for a thorough study of Arbitration laws. Each case has been discussed in simple language and citations have been provided with each case discussion making it convenient for case reference.

If you are a law student and have not yet taken this course and the Arbitration Step by Step 2nd Edn. course, you could miss the opportunity of making yourself thorough with the subject of arbitration before taking your examinations. Even, during your placement interview, your future employer could ask questions related to arbitration and you may be expected to explain certain concepts based on the ratio decidendi of certain case laws. Therefore, not taking this course could make you lose an edge over other prospective candidates.
