Arbitration differs from litigation in many significant ways.  This fact should be uppermost in the minds of attorneys who desire to represent clients effectively in arbitration proceedings administered under the auspices of the American Arbitration Association® (AAA®).  This one-day program presented by a team consisting of an experienced arbitration advocate, an experienced arbitrator from the AAA’s Roster of Arbitrators and Mediators, and an AAA executive is designed to provide attorneys with the need-to-know essentials for effectively preparing and presenting a case pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules and procedures of the AAA.  

The primary topics covered during the program are as follows:

  --  Preliminary Considerations

  --  Initiating an Arbitration with the AAA and Responding Thereto

  --  Administrative Conference and Mediation

  --  Arbitrator Selection and Appointment

  --  The Preliminary Hearing

  --  Discovery in Arbitration

  --  The Evidentiary Hearing

  --  The Arbitration Award

The foregoing topics are presented during the program in the context of is a hypothetical commercial arbitration case.

Who Should Attend?
Litigators, in-house attorneys, transactional attorneys, paralegals, and other individuals who assist advocates in the preparation and presentation of evidence and testimony in commercial arbitration proceedings will find this program to be invaluable.
