Arbitration, whether domestic or international, is not just “litigation lite.” When it comes to evidence, arbitrators follow the applicable arbitration rules and arbitration law, not the Federal Rules of Evidence or Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. And while an arbitrator has broad discretion to admit or reject evidence, that authority is not unlimited. Consequently, the scope of admissible evidence, the nature of evidentiary objections, the relationship between admissible evidence and document production and other pre-hearing discovery, even the value of that evidence itself, can present challenges for someone unfamiliar with the arbitral environment. The differences are even more substantial in international arbitrations.
