20 Minutes

This 20-minute presentation highlights arbitration’s flexibility to provide parties in dispute with the opportunity to be creative in fashioning solutions that save time, money and stress.  Each arbitration should meet the needs of the parties and claims in that particular matter.  Reforming arbitration, or returning arbitration to its roots as an alternative to litigation, is not complicated.  It does not require laws to be passed.  It simply requires that users and providers of arbitration be more innovative in fashioning an excellent arbitration process for each dispute instead of applying a one-size-fits all approach.  Topics addressed in the presentation include:

  • Commercial Arbitration’s Roots
  • Commercial Arbitration vs. State Judicial Systems
  • Arbitrator Selection
  • Curtailing Discovery
  • Time Limitations
  • Expert Witnesses
  • Final Offer Arbitration
  • Form of Award


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