I am doing a research about ethics in international arbitration so I need to know how witness coaching is dealt with in various Countries. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Relevant answer
Answer
In the United States, witness coaching is an inevitable consequence of the adversary process as it is implemented here. ”Practice guides” for trial lawyers recommend witness preparation in civil and criminal cases for all witnesses, especially expert witnesses. Many trial lawyers consider it malpractice not to go to the edge of ethical boundaries (if not beyond) to win for their side.
On the other hand, there are studies upon studies that demonstrate how the competitive aspects of the adversary system lead to injustice. Preparations of eye witnesses (starting with police ID techniques through encouragement to make strong statements at trial by prosecutors) have led to documented wrongful convictions. “Junk science” — often no more than so called experts simply being advocates for the “side” they are hired by — is also found to be a leading cause of wrongful convictions as well as scientifically unsupportable civil judgments.
Much said about the problem. Given the adversary system, solutions are as yet not apparent.
Please share your research. Kind regards, Bob Sanger

I have come across a number of PhD thesis and Research articles where 'the data has been obtained from analysis of Arbitration cases, law cases or some other reports. Often such data collection and analysis is combined with expert opinion as well.
Should this method of data collection and/or analysis be called Case Study Research or some other method like (Content Analysis, Document Analysis, etc.).
By Case study research I understand methodology proposed by Robert Yin (Case Study Methodology), Eisenhardt, and few others.
Please suggest references for your comments. Thanks.

Thank you Izetta Morris for adding another perspective to this discussion. So far, I was considering only from the perspective of analytical method. Of course, in the same documents (say Arbitration cases) researchers can look for Legal angle, construction angle for me, or other aspects. I look in the content of the books you have suggested. I hope it can be bought in our Library.

Hi there,
I prepare material for training workshops I'm looking for guidelines for how much should I charge/get if I prepare the content and someone else gives the material as a trainer repeated times.
For example, if we agreed that I take 50%, I'm looking for guidelines for how much I should take the second time he/she gives the material even if I did nothing the second time.
I need neutral ways to decide job offers (especially free-lance work) such as "last offer arbitration".
So here's my question: Can you recommend individuals/ institutions who can work as third party mediators/arbitrators to settle how much each side should take (especially when the service is repeated)? In agreements in general and/or the specific case of preparing training content for trainers.
Relevant answer
Answer
Perhaps you seek proposals for value apportionment guidelines in relation to a particular type of cooperative venture; or perhaps you are running an informal experiment to assess how much value arbitrators are willing to provide for free.
I accept commercial arbitration mandates.
Considering that you seek a "neutral" process, final offer arbitration (FOA) apparently is not appropriate for your purposes. FOA is not neutral. It works by introducing uncertainty, thereby encouraging the parties to settle in order to avoid the risk FOA creates.
The situation you describe may more appropriately be approached as copyright license valuation task. If the parties in a particular case were to agree upon this modality, I would commence the process with a conference to understand the history and nature of the copyright material. At the conference you (as the copyright holder) would be required to present financial data, if any, associated with the copyright material. Each party would be required to state the envisaged number of instances of use of the copyright material and the time period over which such use may occur. Negotiation may be required to achieve agreement on this point - but to limit arbitration costs, the parties would be advised to agree in advance. I would prepare a conference protocol and require each party to sign it. Then I would proceed to craft an award informed by market-based information on sales, licensing transactions, royalty rates, and other data for comparable copyrights. Based on the circumstances of the particular case, I would project cash flows attributable to, and avoided due to, the copyright. I would then convert the projected cash flows to a net present value using a discount rate reflecting the relative uncertainty of the cash flows. The award could be, but need not be, in the form of a specified price per use of the copyrighted material. The parties may prefer to manage risk by agreeing to abide by an award in the form of a license agreement of specified duration at a fixed license fee.
To inquire further regarding my services, please message me.

I am currently studying conflict management strategies and teachers job effectiveness. The specific purpose of my study to find the relationship between
1. Arbitration strategy and teachers effectiveness
2. Dialogue and teachers effectiveness
3. Effective communication and .....
4. Smoothing strategy and ......
I will have used Pearson alone which am sure will do the work. I feel like finding the combine effect of arbitration, dialogue, effective communication, and smoothing on teachers effectiveness. Will it be nice to do this? Can I employ Pearson to run individual correlation based on the four areas, while I used multiple regression to combine all the 4 strategies on teachers effectiveness?

Please explain the nature, significance and main features of the legal principle according to which an arbitral tribunal is entitled to rule on its own jurisdiction. 
What are the pros and cons of this legal principle?
Relevant answer
Answer
CHAPTER IV “JURISDICTION OF ARBITRAL TRIBUNALS” of the Indian The Arbitration And Conciliation Act, 1996 deals with ‘Competence of arbitral tribunal to rule on its jurisdiction.’
It states-
16. Competence of arbitral tribunal to rule on its jurisdictional. -
(1) The arbitral tribunal may rule on its own jurisdiction, including ruling on any objections with respect to the existence or validity of the arbitration agreement, and for that purpose,
(a) An arbitration clause which forms part of a contract shall be treated as an agreement independent of the other terms of the contract; and
(b) A decision by the arbitral tribunal that the contract is null and void shall not entail ipso jure the invalidity of the arbitration clause.
(2) A plea that the arbitral tribunal does not have jurisdiction shall be raised not later than the submission of the statement of defence; however, a party shall not be precluded from raising such a plea merely because that he has appointed, or participated in the appointment of, an arbitrator.
(3) A plea that the arbitral tribunal is exceeding the scope of its authority shall be raise as soon as the matter alleged to be beyond the scope of its authority is raised during the arbitral proceedings.
(4) The arbitral tribunal may, in either of the cases referred to in sub-section (2) or subsection (3), admit a later plea if it considers the delay justified.
(5) The arbitral tribunal shall decide on a plea referred to in sub-section (2) or sub-section (3) and, where the arbitral tribunal takes a decision rejecting the plea, continue with the arbitral proceedings and make an arbitral award.
(6) A party aggrieved by such an arbitral award may make an application forgetting aside such an arbitral award in accordance with section 34.

I am currently working on a research proposal on the use of Arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism in the African context.

I think the subject matter of your work is clear enough.  However, you may find that your supervisor will be anxious that you confine the topic as narrowly as possible in order to make the study manageable.  There is an excellent text called Research Methodology by Ranjit Kumar which you may find helpful.  It has an excellent chapter on formulating a research problem.

I'll be another vote for mediation.  In our appellate court, cases come to us where they have already been decided at the trial level, whether as a matter of law by the judge, or as the result of a trial where evidence was taken. One might think that having an adjudicated "winner" and "loser" would tend to make the parties' positions more entrenched, and the parties less likely to change their views--particularly the "winners"  However, we do have a mediation office, to which we refer many cases which, in the judgment of our staff attorneys and judges are perhaps not so clear-cut.  Our mediator (whose surname is really Rambo) successfully mediates settlements about 40% of the time he is given a case, to the tune of perhaps 40 a year (our total caseload is about 900).  This is a significant achievement by an exceptionally gifted mediator, but demonstrates that even in situations where the legal posture of a dispute is more solidly established than before it would get to court, mediation can be an extremely successful way of bringing parties together to see a collaborative solution to difficult problems.

I am writing a paper on different types of negotiated 'brand' agreements in the garment and footwear industry. One type of course refers to global framework agreements. Although the agreement between IndustriALL and H&M refers to an independent mediator in case of dispute, I was wondering if there are GFAs that do include binding arbitration. 
Relevant answer
Answer
I did found this document useful, p.59-60 provides an overview of mediation and arbitration mechanism, some of which binding. This ISS-UNI agreement states that '... In the event that the parties are unable to resolve a dispute arising out of this global agreement after discussion at the bi-annual meeting as set out in Section 6.3 above, the matter shall be referred to a mutually agreed independent mediator/arbitrator, who shall seek initially a meditated resolution. In the event of failure to reach a mediated resolution the independent party shall propose an arbitrated resolution which shall be binding on both parties.

In the case of a straight bill of lading, is there any requirement of putting an Arbitration Clause or Is it sufficient to have the Arbitration clause in the charter party? or Is Arbitration clause is really required in a carriage contract evidenced by a Straight Bill of Lading?
Relevant answer
Answer
You have to consider which is the law applicable to the Arbitration Clause. In many jurisdictions, material law of the contract (or of the bill of lading) shall apply, in other jurisdictions, the law of the seat of the Arbitration shall apply. Anyway, it is a safe practice to put the Arbitration Clause in the bill of lading or to make a clear reference to the Arbitration Clause that is in the contract.

Given that in international law it exists between courts of different jurisdiction while in arbitration the public policy comes in especially with the issue of immorality.
Relevant answer
Answer
trade agreements are only enforceable if both parties are subject to the same treatment in arbitration. Most trade treaties involve a third party in order to settle disputes. Comity become problematic when the foreign policy conflicts with domestic policy. For example, for the TPP, there is a section on investment protection that allows investors to sue states if they enact laws that would hurt their investment and therefore affect the creation of laws. Of course the United States would be obligated to allow this to occur but the country is also obligated to protect its citizens from from "things" that affect the well-being of its citizens. Then there is the mentality of "you scratch my back, I scratch yours". This would involve the national government to be involved in the decision making powers of the judicial system of their respective country. Now I do not have to tell you how unconstituional that would be in the United States but you get the idea of how problematic comity could be
