Interactive Live Zoom Training
After registration is confirmed, a separate invitation to the Zoom session will be sent to attendees.


Whether given orally at the close of a hearing or in writing as a post-hearing brief, the primary function of the closing argument is to make it as easy as possible for the arbitrator to reach a favorable determination.

During this training, an experienced AAA® Arbitrator and two skilled professionals will discuss how and when to use closing arguments and/or brief writing to effectively conclude your case.

The speakers will also address:

• How to write an effective closing statement
• Tips and techniques for the best briefs
• What arbitrators need regarding closing arguments and briefs
