There are many ways to learn and stay up-to-date. But learning from arbitrators is the most direct route. They face the issues every day and know the arguments for both sides. In addition to a stellar faculty, the conference features:
- up-to-date coverage on discipline/discharge and contract interpretation issues
- all new case studies
- variety of formats that make the material come alive.
More information about the program is provided below. Please note that the same program will be held nearby in Los Angeles on January 20, 2022, with some variation on faculty.
