For this work, editors Stephen K. Huber and Ben H. Sheppard, Jr. and the University of Houston Law Center collaborate with the American Arbitration Association (AAA), to revive the tradition of publishing an annual survey of important developments in arbitration and the law. Initially published as the qAAA General Counsel's Annual Reportq and later as qADR a the Law, q the annual survey has not been published since 2007. The Yearbook will once again be produced on an annual basis. The AAA Yearbook on Arbitration and the Law provides arbitrators and busy practitioners a practical, relevant and readily accessible resource, organized into two parts: Part One contains digests of important decisions of the United States Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals and state supreme courts. This volume includes digests of selected judicial decisions from 2007 through 2009, and is current through October 1, 2010. The book contains 130 case digests, together with citations and descriptive cross-references to more than 400 related decisions. Recognizing the important role of arbitration in the global economy, there is a separate chapter containing digests and cross-references to cases dealing with the unique issues presented in international arbitrations. Part Two consists of articles that address a wide range of timely and important arbitration topics, including a comprehensive report on the extraordinary range of services that the AAA provides and a detailed overview of the international activities of the AAA/ICDR, including a report on the successful implementation of the ICDR's pre-arbitral emergency arbitrator procedure, the first such procedure to be adopted by any arbitral institution as a standard part of its rules. Other articles address some of the hottest topics in domestic and international arbitration, such as a survey on the status of qmanifest disregard of the lawq as a basis to vacate an arbitral award; arbitral cost allocation decisions and whether guidelines should accompany arbitral discretion; a tenth anniversary reflection on experience under The Revised Uniform Arbitration Act; problems posed by arbitrator disclosure and implications of a duty to investigate; whether a private international arbitration falls within qforeign or internationalq tribunal under 28 U.S.C. Section 1782; and several timely practice pointers for parties seeking discovery in aid of arbitration. The AAA Yearbook re-establishes itself as the preeminent annual yearbook on Arbitration and Dispute Resolution in the United States. It is a required and necessary reference work for all who wish to stay on top of the latest trends, developments , cases and guidelines a accompanied by expert commentary and analysis a in Arbitration and Dispute Resolution.10-370, 10-371, 2010 WL 4225564 (D.
