Faculty and Summary

We’ve all heard about the case involving tens if not hundreds of individual change orders that need to be decided. In this reprised program, hear from experienced construction industry lawyers and arbitrators on:

• What is the best approach as the advocate and the arbitrator in dealing with that situation?
• How can the advocates help make the arbitrator’s job easier in deciding this type of case?

In order to make the proceedings cost-efficient and effective, the AAA teaches its arbitrators to exercise the proper amount of control over the proceedings. But what happens when the parties collectively resist and want the arbitrators to exercise less (not more) control?

As part of its long-standing, ongoing educational mission, the American Arbitration Association grants a limited number of scholarships that cover the cost of educational program registration. Scholarship eligibility is limited to students, government workers, retired professionals, arbitrators/mediators who are no longer active on the AAA roster, and others as may be determined by the AAA. To request a registration fee scholarship, please send an email to Include your current position and affiliation, and a brief description of the basis for your registration fee scholarship request.

West LegalEdcenter is procuring continuing legal education (CLE) credits on behalf of American Arbitration Association.
