80 Minutes

Arbitration hearings can be much more flexible than a trial in court. Experienced arbitrators and advocates know that the arbitration hearing often can be tailored to fit the circumstances of the particular case. This 90-minute recorded webinar presented by two experienced arbitrators highlights what an arbitrator wants to see happen in the hearing. 

Areas covered include—

  • presentation of fact and expert witnesses;
  • management of exhibits;
  • admission of evidence;
  • sequencing and timing of the hearing;
  • how arbitrators should conduct themselves during the hearing;

and more.

Take-Aways: You will learn practical techniques and methods employed in the everyday practice of arbitration.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION:  Arbitrators, advocates, academics, and anyone interested in the dynamics of arbitration.

What others are saying about this presentation...

One of the most practical and well-presented webinars. No matter how long you have been serving as an arbitrator, there was something for everyone to either pick up, confirm you were doing things correctly and/or give you enough substance to make real.

Discussion of practical questions which frequently arise during an arbitration and before as participants (counsel and panel) prepare.

The seminar gave good overview of an arbitration from initial hearing to the end.

The webinar was informative for a non-attorney, construction arbitrator. Addressed issues to be aware of in preparation for a hearing.

Program was packed with useful practical tips from experienced arbitrators.

I very much appreciated having the practical input presented in this webinar.  As an arbitrator it gave me new ideas and also reinforced the validity some of my own practices and procedures.

A very good ""nuts and bolts"" presentation by highly experienced and well-prepared speakers.

Terrific discussion by very experienced arbitrators about what procedures work and why, with great practical tips.

This was a very practical and helpful seminar.  I gained insights that were not shared at other longer seminars.
