About Margaret L. Moses

Professor Moses is an internationally recognized scholar in the field of international commercial arbitration. Her treatise on international commercial arbitration, published in 2008 by Cambridge University Press, has received favorable reviews in publications around the world. A second edition was published in 2012. Her teaching and writings are informed by her participation as an arbitrator or advocate in arbitrations under the auspices of the International Chamber of Commerce, Court of Arbitration, and the American Arbitration Association's International Centre for Dispute Resolution.
In addition to arbitration, her areas of interest and research include international letters of credit, international business transactions, international trade finance and the right to a jury trial. She has published numerous law review articles on both domestic and international arbitration, as well as on international letters of credit, good faith, and other topics. In addition to appearing in leading U.S. law reviews, her articles have been either published or reprinted in Australia, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, England and India. She has been an invited speaker at national and international conferences in many different countries.
In addition, her scholarship with respect to the jury trial right in connection with Revised Article 5 of the Uniform Commercial Code (Letters of Credit) led a number of states, including New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, to adopt a non-uniform version of Article 5. The non-uniform version did not include the curtailment of the jury trial right that is contained in 5-108(e) of the uniform version. Professor Moses also served as Vice-Chair of the ABA subcommittee that worked with the ALI on Revised Article 1 of the UCC. She was invited to join the ALI in 1996. For the near future, Professor Moses' research agenda will focus primarily on domestic and international arbitration issues, as well as issues of statutory interpretation and international treaty interpretation.
Shortly after arriving at Loyola, Professor Moses began Loyola's Vis Moot Arbitration program, which sends two different teams of students to compete in Vienna and Hong Kong. Before joining the Loyola Chicago law faculty in 1998, Professor Moses practiced in New York, Paris, Milan and New Jersey. She has a J.D. degree from Columbia University School of Law and a Ph.D. degree from Indiana University. She is currently the Director of International Programs. She teaches International Commercial Arbitration, International Investment Arbitration, International Business Transactions, International Trade Finance, European Union Law, and Contracts.
