Professor Graves gives an overview of the process of constitution of an arbitral tribunal.
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.

As a step towards promoting of transparency, fairness, and accountability in the selection of international arbitrators, and facilitating increased diversity in arbitrator appointments, an international initiative was launched - the Arbitrator Intelligence (AI). There have also been initiatives focused on increasing diversity in international arbitration. The two notable ones are:
ArbitralWomen - an international non-governmental organization bringing together women practitioners active in international dispute resolution; and
the Equal Representation in Arbitration (The Pledge) initiative.
