From Professors Gomez (FIU) and Strong (Missouri):

The Academic Council of the Institute for Transnational Arbitration is pleased to announce the launch of a new website, International Dispute Resolution Resources for Legal Educators.  The goal of this project is to gather, classify, and disseminate syllabi, notes, exercises, exams, and other original teaching materials prepared by international arbitration teachers from around the world.  As a truly international endeavor, the collection will not be limited to materials written in English, but we also want to encourage the addition of materials written in Spanish, French, Portuguese, and perhaps other languages by teachers of international arbitration from other countries.  We would like to encourage you to submit your own materials as well as reviewing the materials that are already available.

In addition to collecting syllabi and other teaching materials, we are also interested in promoting an exchange of pedagogical approaches, innovative teaching techniques and other strategies, via a dedicated listserv (ITA-LEL).

The website and the listserve are open and accessible to anyone who teaches in the area of international dispute resolution, either full- or part-time.

We are happy  to answer any questions you may have about the purpose and use of the website and listserve.  If you have any questions regarding logistics, please contact Krishonne Johnson (kjohnson@cailaw.org)

Please feel free to circulate this to anyone who you believe may be interested.  Thank you in advance for your support.

Kind regards,

Professor Manuel A. Gomez, Associate Dean of International and Graduate Studies, Florida International University College of Law, magomez@fiu.edu
