  • Description
    The typical arbitration panel consists of three arbitrators—one chosen by each party who then choose the third. Much like panels orchestrated by Jewish Law going back thousands of years, party-appointed panels are the norm. But can a panel of which two-thirds has been chosen by a specific party truly be considered neutral? Viewing the issue from a comparative law perspective, this CLE course will explore the unique set of ethics surrounding tri-partite arbitration and the nuances of how the agreements between the parties may determine the makeup of the arbitration forum.
