Among the most important aspects of commercial arbitration practice are the ethical obligations of arbitrators as well as practitioners and arbitral providers. But the nature and scope of ethics in arbitration and how they compare to ethics in litigation are not well understood.
Expert faculty who are arbitrators and previously were advocates will provide critical information including:
- Ethics for practitioners when preparing for and conducting the arbitration hearing
- Ethics for arbitrators regarding their selection as arbitrators, exercising discretion and conducting the arbitration hearing
- Ethics for arbitral providers in implementing their administrative rules
