Topic(s) Class Actions in Arbitration: How Many Eggs Go in One Basket?
[Hon. Philip M. Pro (Ret.)] [Michael J. Loeb, Esq.]
March 17, 2016 | 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM (CST)
This panel will discuss the legal and practical considerations that arise when class and collective actions clash with arbitration agreements. Topics will include the pros and cons of class arbitration, whether class arbitrability is a decision for courts or arbitrators, whether employers violate the NLRA by requiring employees to execute class waivers, and the practical challenges when employers insist on individualized arbitration of small-stakes claims.


A Peek into the Minds of Arbitrators
[Hon. Candace Cooper (Ret.)]

March 19, 2016 | 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM (CST)
Have you ever wondered what an arbitrator really thinks? Many practitioners wonder what documents and other evidence are most persuasive to an arbitrator, which witnesses an arbitrator finds most credible, and how an arbitrator wants to see a case presented. This program will explore those questions, as well as what arbitrators think about discovery disputes and summary judgment motions. Three distinguished arbitrators with different perspectives and backgrounds are prepared to address these questions (and more) candidly and in a most entertaining manner.
