Prof. Aragaki receives accolade in AALS Scholarly Papers Competition

Associate Professor Hiro Aragaki’s paper, “The Federal Arbitration Act as Procedural Reform,” received honorable mention in the Association of American Law Schools 2014 Scholarly Papers Competition. The selection committee praised the article for doing “an excellent job of unearthing and clearly recounting an alternative history of the FAA, and of nicely relating that history to modern doctrinal problems.”

Aragaki credited friends and colleagues at Loyola Law School with providing invaluable feedback on the paper, which was presented at the ABA Dispute Resolution Section Works in Progress Conference held at Cardozo Law School, the Federal Courts Junior Faculty Workshop held at Brooklyn Law School and theSouthern California Junior Faculty Workshop held at California Western Law School.
