60 Minutes 

Technology related evidence is often presented in a variety of arbitrated disputes, particularly in such complex areas as construction, patent, oil/gas, and research and development. The evidence might be at the core of the dispute, or underlying other disputed issues. It is critical for arbitrators, even those having technical backgrounds, to appreciate the relevance of the technical evidence presented with regard to the issues in dispute.

In this 60-minute recorded webinar, a panel of experienced arbitrators from various practice areas discusses ideas that arbitration advocates and arbitrators can use to refine their presentation and arbitration process management skills. Advocates will learn from the arbitrator’s perspective ways to improve their presentation of technical evidence and information more clearly and persuasively. Arbitrators will learn how to guide advocates into making clear and persuasive presentations of technical evidence and information.

Areas covered will include:

  • how technical information not properly presented can confuse or detract from a persuasive presentation;
  • assumptions advocates make about arbitrators and the arbitration process that decrease their effectiveness as advocates;
  • tips for presenting technical information and evidence to educate and persuade;
  • tips for linking technical information and evidence to disputed issues the arbitration panel will need to determine.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION – Arbitrators, advocates, and anyone interested in technical/complex case arbitration.

This program does not qualify for the AAA's annual Arbitrator Continuing Education (ACE) requirement.
