Topic:Trials Without Rules – The Wild West of Arbitration

Trying a case in arbitration is not like trying it in court. The rules of evidence are relaxed or non-existent, particularly since everyone is aware that one of the few grounds for post-arbitration review is a refusal to hear evidence. How does this affect how the case is tried?  How does the pre- and post-arbitration briefing affect the way that evidence is presented? What about the difference between a one arbitrator and a three arbitrator panel, and how they compare to a bench trial? As more cases than ever are tried, if at all, only in a conference room, business litigators need to think about the tactics and strategy of how to try their case in this unique forum.

Join this program, which includes one hour General MCLE, with a panel of great trial lawyers who have tried a wide range of cases both inside and outside of conference rooms:

  • John Bartko, Bartko, Zankel Bunzel & Miller LLP
