90 Minutes


During this 90-minute recorded webinar, dispute resolution experts Lisa Renee Pomerantz and Michele S. Riley identify opportunities for using mediation techniques in arbitration that can help enhance the arbitration process and outcome of the case.

The speakers address the techniques that can be exported from mediation and how they can be applied in arbitration, the benefits of incorporating mediation techniques throughout the arbitration process, what arbitrators and attorneys can do to maximize these benefits, and the challenges of incorporating mediation skills into arbitration.

Other items to be discussed include:


  • The "arbitration paradox"
  • How it can be avoided
  • How arbitrators can balance the need to take control with the need to ensure party satisfaction with the process


By listening to this webinar, you’ll discover ways to employ mediation skills and techniques at each stage of the arbitration process while utilizing applicable AAA® Rules.
