PLI Arbitrability Treatise Chapter Drafted

I have completed on August 9, 2017, initial drafting of the chapter on arbitrability and arbitral jurisdiction that I was asked to contribute to the forthcoming Practicing Law Institute (PLI) treatise on US domestic commercial arbitration. This chapter covers a wide range of subjects and includes treatment of US Supreme Court jurisprudence on allocation of power between courts and arbitrators, FAA pre-emption of state law, and scope of judicial review of arbitrators’ arbitrability decisions.
