The steps to becoming a successful arbitrator or mediator are not clearly evident. What is even more shrouded in secrecy is the selection process of an arbitrator or mediator for a particular matter even after an individual is placed on a roster of neutrals. What is the role of diversity, if any, in the neutral selection process? These panel discussions are designed to provide insights and guidance to women and minority attorneys who are considering becoming arbitrators or mediators as all or part of their practice. The evening will provide practical tips and advice from a distinguished group of panelists with extensive experience as neutrals or with neutral selection and will provide information on training and skills needed to become a neutral.
Panel 1: Demystifying the Process of Becoming a Successful
Neutral: 6:15 - 7:15 pm
Panel 2: Insights from the Neutrals: 7:15 - 8:15 pm
