Professor Jack Coe, Restatement of the Law, The U.S. Law of International and Investor-State Arbitration, Published by The American Law Institute
Professor Jack J. Coe, Jr. served as an associate reporter on the “Restatement of the Law, The U.S. Law of International Commercial and Investor-State Arbitration,” which was recently published as a two-volume text by the American Law Institute.
The Restatement was approved in 2019 at the 96th Annual Meeting of The American Law Institute (ALI) in Washington, D.C. The vote marked the completion of the project that began in 2007 under the leadership of Reporter George A. Bermann of Columbia Law School and Associate Reporters Jack J. Coe, Jr., of Pepperdine University School of Law, Christopher R. Drahozal of the University of Kansas School of Law, and Catherine A. Rogers of Bocconi University.
Announcing the print edition of the Restatement, Professor Rogers stated on LinkedIn, “Restatements are a secondary source of law that can (and often are) cited by the courts. They can then become the rule of decision for a case, which is then precedent when that case is cited again. Our Restatement has already been cited by U.S. courts more than 20 times.”
