    Comprehensive Commercial Arbitration Training For Arbitrators And Counsel

    8:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.Online

    For the past 10 years, master arbitrators Charlie Moxley and Edna Sussman – who are now joined as co-chairs by Skadden’s international arbitration expert, Lea Haber Kuck – have presented a widely acclaimed three-day training for Arbitrators through the New York State Bar Association’s Dispute Resolution Section.
    Simeon H. Baum will join their spectacular smorgasbord of 44 other Faculty members who, collectively, have served as arbitrators or counsel in 100s, if not 1,000s, of arbitrations.  His panel will address opportunities in the ADR field.
    This training may be of interest for new arbitrators and seasoned arbitrators interested in taking their skills to the next level – and for litigators interested in learning how best to represent clients in arbitrations to take advantage of the advocacy opportunities available in arbitration.
    The program is co-sponsored by Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law,
