Arbitration Conversation No. 63: Prof. Pamela Bookman of the Fordham University School of Law

In this episode of the Arbitration Conversation, Amy interviews Professor Pamela Bookman of the Fordham University School of Law on arbitral courts. Prof. Bookman is an expert in the fields of Civil Procedure, Contracts, International Litigation and Arbitration, and Conflict of Laws, and prior to joining Fordham she was a Counsel in the New York office of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr LLP.

The discussion is about arbitral courts, courts that mimic arbitration’s traditional features but that, unlike arbitration, bind third parties, develop the law, and wield the power of the state.
