Practitioners have a unique opportunity and even responsibility to explore key developments for international dispute resolution in our respective markets and industries. California is one of the world’s leading economies that includes an array of international industries like information technology, agriculture, manufacturing, healthcare, entertainment, construction, energy and others. Understanding the range of variables in an international dispute resolution proceeding requires an introspective analysis of ethics, inclusion, capacity and industry developments in comparison and connection to the jurisdictions and communities with which we do business and resolve disputes. Our globally representative faculty will discuss, debate, and explore these important ethical, practice, inclusion, capacity and other related topics in all of these related markets.

15:45 to 17:00 Inclusion, Access, Community and Elimination of Bias in International Dispute Resolution in California and Abroad (Elimination of Bias CLE)
We will interactively discuss some of the challenges of community, diversity, access, representation and bias in relation to international dispute resolution. Over the past number of years, much has been done to increase the inclusion with the appointments of arbitrators and mediators, selection of counsel, educational programing, social gatherings, organizational leadership, and many other formal and informal groups. Even with this progress, we need to acknowledge that there is still a gap between where we think we are and where we need to be. This panel will not only discuss and challenge our presumptions, but also provide valuable insight into what we can do individually and collectively to consciously overcome these dispute resolution blind spots.
