Book Review: Bennett Explains Arbitration Fundamentals, without the Legalese

Amy J. Schmitz, University of Missouri School of Law


At the outset of the book, Steven Bennett expresses "fervent hope that this book will be of use to lawyers, law students and business people interested in learning the fundamentals of arbitration law." The book therefore focuses on fundamental, or basic, arbitration concepts and norms. It does not purport to provide in-depth discussion and analysis of arbitration law, but instead serves as a shelf reference or primer that promises to achieve Bennett's goal.
