Well-represented and sophisticated parties like Fortune 500 companies and professional athletes voluntarily choose arbitration. Why? They know they can choose an arbitrator who really understands their issues. They can shape their own process. Perhaps most importantly, they can actually get a prompt hearing and a final and binding decision. With this training, you can be that arbitrator!


  • The solid legal basis for your broad arbitral powers and immunity from liability
  • How to handle and rule on procedural and pre-hearing issues, including unwilling parties, disputed discovery, and issuing subpoenas
  • How to manage the formal hearings, including how to effectively handle belligerent participants and evidentiary challenges
  • The essential elements of writing binding awards settling all issues, including different award formats
  • How to maintain ongoing jurisdiction where necessary
  • The many opportunities to gain real world experience as an arbitrator
