Articles / May 2, 2017

BakerHostetler Partners Mark Cymrot and Paul Levine co-authored a chapter for the newly published book, “The Roles of Psychology in International Arbitration.” Their chapter, “Going First Makes a Difference: Decision-Making Dynamics in Arbitration,” describes the strategic impact of procedural decisions in international arbitration, with a focus on the importance of order of presentation at the hearing. The article questions preconceived notions of the weight given to written memorials and the need for critical thinking when agreeing to procedures often used in arbitration.

Other contributors to the book write about psychological studies and their own behavioral insights about the decision-making process in international arbitration. The book includes chapters by internationally renowned arbitrators, law professors, psychology professors and psychologists.

The book is part of the International Arbitration Law Library, edited by Tony Cole, and published by Wolters Kluwer.
