The Arbitration Commons

The Arbitration Commons is essentially an attitude. In the world of international arbitration and dispute resolution, there was a visionary named Thomas Waelde who created communities online where people share ideas and provide help to others involved in the profession of resolving disputes involving transnational parties. He also created an online academic publication entitled “Transnational Dispute Resolution Journal.” Professor Waelde attracted most of the best known professionals in the world to his communities and they have now become a subscription-based service.

In the same spirit, I invite anyone who has a question about dispute resolution to share it with me. I may know the answer or may not. My attitude is that I will benefit simply by knowing the question exists and attempting to either answer it or help you to find an answer. I will use the questions to introduce myself to people and to introduce people to others. In this way, I hope to enrich my circle of colleagues and in the process may also enrich others.
Because information technology is such an important part of the ability to share with larger and larger numbers of people regardless of geographic borders, I am committed to experimenting with new technologies as part of the Arbitration Commons. Some of these technologies are being developed for use by younger people, some of it has not yet enjoyed a significant business application, but I will encourage use of them in the Arbitration Commons.
I will try to stay current with technology and think of ways it may be used to help contribute to the Arbitration Commons, but use of the Arbitration Commons will not establish an attorney-client relationship so messages containing confidential or time-sensitive information should be posted here.  Of course, the hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements.  This web site is designed for general information only and the information presented at this site should not be construed to be formal legal advice nor the formation of a lawyer/client relationship.
