International Survey on Legal Reasoning in Commercial Arbitration

 

Those with experience serving as arbitrators or judges in national or international commercial disputes are invited to complete an anonymous electronic survey that is part of an international empirical research project entitled “Survey on Legal Reasoning in Commercial Disputes” (IRB #2010449C).  The survey is being conducted by Professor S.I. Strong, a specialist in international and comparative dispute resolution and a senior faculty member at the Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution at the University of Missouri School of Law (see http://law.missouri.edu/faculty/directory/strongs.html).


The research is the first large-scale, international empirical study to focus on the process of legal reasoning and is intended to improve our understanding of how judges and arbitrators resolve complex commercial disputes in both national and international settings by exploring potential differences between (1) judicial and arbitral decision-making; (2) national and international decision-making; and (3) common law and civil law decision-making.  The study will not only help parties make more informed choices about where and how to resolve their legal disputes, it will also assist arbitrators and judges in carrying out their duties by improving counsel’s understanding about how to best to craft and present legal arguments and submissions.


If you have experience as an arbitrator or judge in commercial disputes and would like to participate in this survey, please click this link or paste this e-address into your browser <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/commercial-dispute-strong >.

The survey should take approximately twenty minutes to complete, and participation is entirely anonymous.  The survey will remain open until 11:59 p.m. Central Daylight Time (CDT) on May 1, 2018.


If you have any questions about this project, you can contact Professor Strong at +1-573-882-2465 or strongsi@missouri.edu.  If you have any questions about your rights as a research subject, you can call the University of Missouri Campus Institutional Review Board at +1-573-882-9585.
