Professor Jack Graves is a faculty member at Touro Law Center, where he teaches Contracts, Business Law, Arbitration, and Digital Lawyering (technology-leveraged legal service delivery). Graves writes on commercial law and arbitration, including his recent book, Learning Contracts (West 2014), an innovative first-year teaching text that abandons the traditional law school casebook method in favor of individual lessons containing learning objectives, explanations, examples, and problems in support of a flipped classroom approach. Graves also serves as Director of Digital Legal Education at Touro, leading initiatives to add online offerings of traditional law courses, as well as innovative new courses in “digital lawyering.” He has most recently turned his textbook on International Sales Law & Arbitration into an interactive online course for fully asynchronous delivery. Graves brings a multi-dimensional perspective to his work, with a unique blend of experiences in business management, commercial and corporate law practice, and legal education.

Under the auspice of the UNCITRAL, Professor Emmanuel Gaillard and Professor George Bermann prepared the Guide on the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, 1958. The guide aims to promote the uniform and effective interpretation and application of the New York Convention.
The information regarding the New York Convention in general, its history, its interpretation and application by the courts, a bibliography, and other relevant matters such as a "draft" for a revised Convention is available on the www.newyorkconvention.org website. The website also provides access to the relevant case law concerning the application and interpretation of this treaty.
