I have expanded the number of credits for this course in order to provide students with more skills development with respect to the drafting of arbitration agreements, distinguishing arbitration from other ADR processes, and conducting arbitration hearings, including the pre-hearing stage. Grades will be based on class participation and a final paper and/or take home examination. The Paper may satisfy the school's writing requirment. I expect to be assisted in the course by Adjunct Professor Joel Davidson and several outside speakers, including the present and former general counsel of the American Arbitration Association.Credits: 3
