Conference Description

The place to learn is where the teachers are among the first tier of labor arbitrators, the materials are complete, your questions are answered, and the instruction is practical so you can put the training to immediate use. At this two day conference, you will learn the important arbitral and legal principles, refine your advocacy skills, and be prompted to think about strategies in your own work.

The registration fee covers admission to all sessions, the workbook, and all breaks. We welcome you to Baltimore for practical training with a superb faculty.
