Professor Jack J. Coe Jr., Teaching International ADR & the Case for Reality-Based Simulations, 22 The Journal of the London Court of International Arbitration  2, 249 (2006). http://arbitration-adr.org/news/

Professor Coe presents an article challenging traditional teaching methods in legal education and suggests that in order to teach the skills necessary for arbitration students must use a hands-on approach to learning.

Coe describes his use of extensive hypothetical fact patterns which unfold corresponding to key segments in an arbitration proceeding. Student are ultimately able to encounter a represntative range of problems from pre-dispute to the post-award setting. Ideally, every student the class will have had the opportunity to participate in role-play as a lawyer, arbitrator, or expert. This practical mode of teaching enables students to experience arbitration first-hand and receive feedback and criticism geared toward improvement. Coe’s article outlines practical considerations and suggestions for improved classroom education in the field of arbitration.
