General Principles of Law and International Due ProcessCharles T. Kotuby, Jr., a Washington-based partner in Jones Day's Global Disputes Practice, has co-authored General Principles of Law and International Due Process (2017, Oxford University Press), the Firm announced. General Principles of Law and International Due Process, which Mr. Kotuby co-authored with attorney Luke A. Sobota, is both a scholarly and practical treatise on widely applied principles and norms that are commonly used in transnational disputes — from investment arbitration to international litigation.

The significance of these principles has increased dramatically in the 60-plus years since the publication of Bin Cheng's classic work on the topic in 1953. General Principles of Law and International Due Process summarizes and analyzes the developments since Mr. Cheng’s writing.

"Chuck has produced a very important and timely book," said Greg Shumaker, who leads Jones Day's Global Disputes Practice. "As commerce continues to become more multinational, so will large and complicated disputes. Chuck's work will be an exceptional resource for lawyers and arbitrators seeking a solid understanding of the most fundamental principles and norms that apply everywhere."

The book's Foreword is written by Judge Stephen M. Schwebel, international arbitrator and formerly of the International Court of Justice, who has referred to the work as "a signal contribution to the progressive development of international law." Judge James Crawford of the International Court of Justice has noted that the book "provid[es] a timely update to Bin Cheng's classic work, [as] it focuses on the application of the principles to private conduct - an astute response to the evolution of international process over the past half-century."

Organized into three major chapters and supported by an extensive annex of cases, General Principles of Law and International Due Process opens with a discussion of the history and genesis of the general principles, and then undertakes a substantial review of how they have been interpreted and applied in modern cases and in academic work.

With its singular tradition and widely recognized record of client service, Jones Day provides formidable legal talent across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions through the seamless collaboration of a true partnership that shares fundamental professional values. Spread across five continents, Jones Day has more than 2,500 lawyers in 44 offices located in major centers of business and finance around the world.
