Faculty and Summary

While the effects of COVID-19 have greatly impacted individuals, businesses and organizations, the alternative dispute resolution process has also needed to adapt to this ever-evolving situation and likewise contracts will be changing.

During this 90-minute webinar, the faculty will examine contract clauses that have been used to date during the pandemic, the type of clauses that will be needed going forward as a result of the pandemic and why the change is needed.

They will also discuss the dynamics of conducting virtual and in-person hearings amid COVID-19 restrictions and reopenings. Faculty will explore:
• how disputes are being handled
• what should be considered
• what works best
• what doesn’t work
