Joint ADR Committee Chair Will Shewmake announced a committee focus this year on arbitration. In the Committee’s ADR Advisory of Aug. 31, he describes several programs on arbitration that the committee will present in the remaining months of 2016. Check it out.
Please also take a look at the forceful response published in the ABA’s Summer 2016 Dispute Resolution Magazine to the New York Times’ fall 2015 series on arbitration. Written by Professor David B. Lipsky, the ABA article challenges the conclusions in the Times articles and generalizations about the value and fairness of the arbitration process. Professor Lipsky is an advocate both for the use of arbitration and for making changes that will enhance its transparency and fairness.
Lawyers interested in understanding better whether, how and when to use arbitration should review Professor Lipsky’s points.
