In 2013, the American Arbitration Association® created the Administrative Review Council (ARC) to resolve certain administrative issues arising on large, complex domestic cases and to ensure that such case issues are reviewed and resolved at a high level by individuals within the AAA having significant arbitration experience. The Council is composed of current and former high-level AAA executives who bring decades of combined experience in ADR and AAA case administration to the decision-making process. In conjunction with the Council Guidelines and Council Review Standards, the Council makes decisions after careful consideration of the parties' contentions, while upholding the integrity of the ADR process and reinforcing the parties' confidence in the process.

This 19-minute, pre-recorded presentation provides an overview of the Council’s work and, in particular, its work in settling the following issues:

  1. Objections to Arbitrators
  2. Locale Determinations
  3. Whether the Filing Requirements Contained in the AAA Rules Have Been Met

The AAA does not offer CLE in any jurisdiction for our online programs, but you may be able to use a copy of the certificate available at the conclusion of the course to submit for CLE credit on your own (we recommend that you confirm availability of CLE in your jurisdiction for this type of course).
