30 Minutes

Efforts to improve the arbitral process usually revolve around better management of various elements: scheduling conferences, conducting the hearing, discovery, advocacy, evidence and witnesses, award writing, etc. This 30-minute recorded webinar, however, provides resources that you, as an arbitrator, can use to refine your non-judgmental listening and analytical skills and enhance impartiality. More than a dozen exercises put you on the path toward arbitrating cases free of conscious or even subconscious pre-judgment.

Areas covered include--

  • How to keep from making snap judgments.
  • How to assess evidence.
  • What experiences might influence your thinking.
  • How to be a “blank slate.”
  • How to cultivate impartiality with daily introspection.

Following David Waddell’s blueprint for improving your impartiality as an arbitrator will not only positively affect the way you conduct all aspects of the arbitral process, it will instill confidence in parties that their case is being heard free of any form of bias or pre-judgment. This webinar is for arbitrators, advocates, academics, and anyone interested in the dynamics of the arbitration process.

This program does not qualify for the AAA's annual Arbitrator Continuing Education (ACE) requirement.
