In light of recent developments in the field of arbitration – including the increasing appetite of the U.S. Supreme Court to grant certiorari petitions relating to the enforcement of arbitration agreements under the FAA and the NLRB’s decision prohibiting class action waivers as a condition of employment in mandatory pre-dispute arbitration procedures – we are increasingly encountering challenges to the way in which parties and neutrals conduct arbitrations as a mechanism for dispute resolution. A distinguished panel representing the in-house employment bar, the plaintiffs’ bar, the NLRB perspective, and arbitrators and arbitration practitioners will explore various "hot issues” in the field of arbitration, including class action waivers, discovery issues, vacatur motions on arbitral awards, and the need for more diverse neutrals.

This program will be a live moderated panel format. It is appropriate for both transitional and non-transitional attorneys. There will be no admission fee charged.

Approved in New York for 1.5 CLE credit hours in Areas of Professional Practice.
