A Note from the Editors-in-Chief

Welcome to ITA in Review, a new cutting-edge publication that addresses, through diverse content, key developments in the field of international and domestic dispute resolution.

We are delighted to announce the official launch of ITA in Review, the new and dynamic on-line law journal of the Institute for Transnational Arbitration (ITA). 

ITA in Review is a cutting-edge publication that addresses key developments in the field of international and domestic dispute resolution, including arbitration, conciliation, litigation, and mediation, through diverse content, such as scholarly and practical articles, transcripts of ITA’s programs, book reviews, short comments, video interviews, and multimedia presentations.  ITA in Review strives to provide a voice and platform for diverse contributors, including Young ITA members.

The genesis of ITA in Review can be traced back a decade to the World Arbitration and Mediation Review (WAMR), a law journal which quickly became the ITA’s premiere legal publication.  Unfortunately, about two years ago, the ITA and WAMR parted ways, leaving a void in the ITA.  However, the ITA leadership refused to accept the loss of such a valuable resource, and in 2017 formed a task force to address this void.  After several attempts and many iterations of names, usability, reach, and design, ITA in Review was born.

It is only fitting that ITA in Review would be born 10 years after the ITA first began its publishing efforts.  In numerology, the number 10 represents crystallization, the idea of patience, and nascent birth.  ITA in Review enshrines these concepts.  ITA in Review is the rebirth of ITA’s publishing efforts and the crystallization of the many ideas that the ITA has been patiently waiting for the opportunity to materialize.

Many ITA members, some of whom already have left us, devoted much to make ITA’s historical publication efforts a success.  The significant contributions of Judge Charles N. Brower, James Castello, Prof. David Caron, Donald Donovan, R. Doak Bishop, Prof. Lucy Reed, Prof. Charles (Chip) Brower, Prof. Andrea Bjorklund, Dietmar Prager, David Winn, Leah Harhay, and many others infuse and inspire ITA in Review.

On behalf of the ITA in Review Editorial Board, we are excited to launch ITA in Review and trust that our readership will find its instructive, interesting, and cutting-edge content to be of great value.
