World Arbitration and Mediation Review

Current Issue:


World Arbitration and Mediation Review (WAMR) is a quarterly journal that provides its readers with a thorough assessment of the contemporary developments, policy and academic debates, and practical challenges related to the worldwide regulation and use of arbitration and mediation.  WAMR provides value to both professionals and academics interested in the global and domestic dimensions of arbitration and mediation through high quality publications that include scholarly, policy and practice-oriented articles, editorial commentaries, analysis of recent cases, book reviews, and other writings. The Review addresses, through scholarly and practical articles, comments, notes, and other sources, both the international and domestic aspects of arbitration and mediation. Given its global reach, dynamic format and frequency, WAMR aims to become a key reference for cutting edge and excellent research in the field of dispute resolution worldwide.

WAMR provides value to arbitrators, mediators and counsel who have many demands on their time and thus seek a professional publication that is trustworthy, succinct, and current. WAMR provides both timely viewpoints as well as special groupings of articles that focus on issues of concern to the arbitration and mediation community. The goal is to provide a resource for practitioners that addresses often difficult and complicated subjects, but presents them in a quick to search and easy to read format. In doing this, WAMR’s Editorial Board seeks as a point of perspective both the global reach of international arbitration and mediation, as well as the viewpoint and needs of those practicing in this area from the United States.

WAMR is edited by Florida International University College of Law (Miami, U.S.A.) and published by Juris Publishing, Inc., under the leadership of Professor Manuel A. Gómez as Editor-In-Chief, a motivated Editorial Board, and printed and distributed by Juris Publishing. This partnership ensures both the rigorous selection and academic quality of the journal’s content, and also the timely production and worldwide distribution online and in print. WAMR also relies on a Board of Advisors comprised of prominent practitioners, academics, and other dispute resolution experts from around the world, which reinforces the significance of this journal as a premier vehicle for the dissemination of knowledge and information about the dynamic world of arbitration and mediation.


Submit articles, notes, book reviews, and media reviews to submitwamr@fiu.edu


A book or media review is a form of literary criticism in which a book, documentary, or film is analyzed based on content, style, and merit. A book review may be a primary source, opinion piece, summary review or scholarly review. (1,500 to 2,500 words)


A case note is a scholarly report or a concise analysis of a recent, significant decision. Analysis is supported by citations to related cases and important secondary authorities. The basic difference between a case note, a comment, and an article is the breadth of the subject matter covered. A case note should analyze a single case. In contrast, a comment addresses an area of the law, focusing on specific issues, cases, and legislation. (3,500 to 7,000 words)


Articles tend to analyze a problem and suggestion a solution. Such analysis usually articulates some background information to inform the reader, before turning to a novel argument. Along these lines, published articles regularly follow a traditional roadmap of introduction, background, analysis/argument, and conclusion, and provide a comprehensive treatment of a particular area of law. Articles tend to be formal in both the author’s tone and in the obligation to ground information and analysis in comprehensive substantive support via consistent citation. (10,000-20,000 words)
