    • The In Camera Breakfast Series: Exploring Intra-Tribunal Dynamics and Decision-Making: Part III Ethical Issues & Misconduct


      Join the NYSBA’s International Dispute Resolution Committee, in cooperation with NYIAC and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators’ New York Branch, for a three-part series on the inner workings of arbitral tribunals. We will explore different
      approaches to building tribunal cohesion and collegiality, organizing deliberations, delegating responsibilities among tribunal members and to tribunal assistants, and dealing with arbitrator misconduct. This series offers a unique opportunity for
      counsel to better understand how tribunals make decisions and for arbitrators to consider how they might be more effective as co-arbitrators or chairs.  

      Part III: Ethical Issues & Misconduct
      December 14, 2016 | 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. | Dorsey & Whitney LLP, 51st W 52nd Street
