The Intensive Arbitrator Training Workshop is a full-day session focused on the effective engagement of party arbitrators. Presentations by industry veterans and involvement in mock sessions will emphasize the role of the party-appointed arbitrator in the arbitration process.
This program, which will run from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., is designed for newer or aspiring arbitrators; this training is also a great way for veteran arbitrators to refresh their knowledge and skills. It is required for anyone who intends to apply for arbitrator certification under Options B or C of the Arbitration Experience / Knowledge Component of the ARIAS•U.S. Certification Requirements.
The program is structured so that all arbitrator participants have the opportunity to function in the arbitrator’s role in a hands-on mock arbitration. Panel members will be presented with arguments by participating attorneys. They will then deliberate “in private” in front of the other participants, including instructors, who will provide feedback.
