Have you ever thought about what it would take to serve as a Construction Arbitrator or Mediator? Do you think you have to wait until the end of your career to pursue an ADR Practice? You don’t. Most arbitrators on the American Arbitration Association (AAA) Construction Panel still maintain a full-time practice.
On June 30th, Division 1 (Litigation & Dispute Resolution) is teaming up with the AAA, Construction Litigation Committee of the ABA Section of Litigation, and the Forum's Diversity + Inclusion Committee for a virtual program on how you can design your career path to have a successful neutral practice. Our panelists from the AAA, Forum/D1, and CLC will discuss what it takes to be an arbitrator or mediator with the AAA's Construction Panel, give tips for building the type of experience that the AAA looks for and offer insight and advice for building a successful ADR practice. Understanding that parties often seek diverse viewpoints in dispute resolution, the AAA has made a concerted effort to attract and mentor diverse arbitrators and mediators. During this session, the Panelists will discuss the training and continuing education offered by the AAA to its panelists, as well as its mentoring program.
It is never too early to start planning your career goals and aspirations. We hope you join us for this discussion. There will be time for questions at the conclusion of the program.
