Who should attend?
Any lawyers involved with mediation or arbitration in federal or state courts or administrative tribunals.

Use of mediation and arbitration in federal law disputes, as well as in state and administrative tribunals, continues to grow as dockets remain crowded and as clients look for faster and cheaper ways to resolve disputes while preserving important relationships. Two experienced practitioners will discuss the use of mediation and arbitration, including the processes for each, how they differ and when each is used, the role of the lawyers in both situations, how federal case ADR compares to state cases, and what courts expect from the processes.
