  • Description

    Arbitration is all the rage as parties try to avoid an expensive legal battle. But is arbitration the peaceful, inexpensive solution people think? This CLE course will present the Illinois Arbitration Act (710 ILCS 5/1 et. seq.) and how to handle contracts with arbitration clauses, excluding those that involve interstate commerce. The course will explain the power of arbitration panels in Illinois and how to extricate oneself from contracts that include arbitration panels. Choosing a good arbitration panel and potential bias will all be discussed.
