Conference Description

The place to learn is where the teachers are among the top 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 conference, you will learn the latest developments, refine your advocacy skills, and be prompted to think about strategy and arguments in your own work. We welcome you to Chicago for superb training with a top-notch faculty.


The arbitrators on the faculty have substantial experience as teachers and arbitrators. In alphabetical order, Richard Adelman is a former NLRB attorney, teaching fellow at Stanford, and permanent arbitrator/umpire under several major agreements. Steve Befort is a well-known labor arbitrator, in addition to having a long teaching career at the University of Minnesota Law School. Terry Bethel is a prominent law professor (Emeritus) at Indiana University and permanent umpire under several major agreements, including those in steel and heavy industry. Walt De Treux practiced labor law and for the last 20 years has been a prominent labor arbitrator. Jeanne Vonhof is one of the top labor arbitrators in the country, after practicing law and teaching. They all enjoy teaching and look forward to answering your questions.

Facility Description

This conference is one of the best values in continuing education. The tuition is among the lowest of CLE and CE programs in the field of labor and employment law. Chicago is also reasonably-priced for airfares, with many choices of airlines and flight times into O’Hare and Midway. The group rate at the Fairmont is a very good value, not just for Chicago and other hotels in the top tier, but also in comparison to other major U.S. cities.
