Various aspects of arbitration remain hot topics from a legal perspective and warrant continued close scrutiny by ADR professionals. The limited role the courts play in the arbitration process has been fairly well delineated, but certain issues arise with greater frequency that test those boundaries. The outcomes of some of these challenges can impact how arbitration is conducted and affect the overall results of your cases.   

This comprehensive update examines case law developments in areas such--   

  -  enforceability of arbitration agreements (mutual assent, proof of agreement by “standard procedure”, unilateral modification, competence and consideration, ethics, unconscionability, confidentiality, waiver, and more);

  -  class action issues (Dodd-Frank, certiorari, delegation, “wholly groundless” exception, NLRA and class waivers, and more);

  -  the arbitration process (subpoena powers, functus officio);

  -  review and vacatur (grounds for vacatur, refusal to hear relevant evidence, evident partiality, conflict and bias, disclosure, and more).

This webinar is for arbitrators, advocates, parties, academics, and anyone interested in the dynamics of arbitration.      

This presentation does not qualify for the annual Arbitrator Continuing Education (ACE) requirement.
