Read about what our previous attendees had to say about the training:
"I have never been to a better training seminar in my 29 year career."
The level of information and energy was amazing. It covered the area from soup to nuts. The seminar should be used for prospective arbitrators by all of the various arbitration programs. The knowledge and willingness to answer questions of the speakers was awesome. Mr. Moxley's guidance resulted in a tremendous sharing of expertise by extremely experienced and knowledgeable panelists. They held the interest of the audience for three rather long sessions. The speaking were extremely giving and willing to share their experiences.
I would recommend this seminar to everyone. It is a must."
"Great learning experience, superb presentations and excellent networking. This is one of the best three day CLE programs I have ever attended."
