90 Minutes

Arbitrator disclosure rules and statutes were written before the proliferation of electronic professional and social media. Consequently there is little guidance for both arbitrator and advocate as to how arbitrator disclosure obligations apply to online activities, communications and relationships. Must an arbitrator or litigator disclose the connections they have online that have some relationship to the parties or attorneys in a prospective case?

This 90-minute recorded webinar offers guidance on the extent to which disclosure must be made, the pitfalls to avoid and—as an arbitrator--how to manage your online presence.

Areas covered include:

  • Existing arbitrator disclosure standards
  • Case law
  • Judicial guidelines
  • The challenges presented by the Internet Age
  • Arbitrator communications on the Internet
  • Disclosing affiliations
  • Managing your online profile
  • Endorsements
  • Considerations for advocates

And more.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION – Arbitrators, advocates, litigators, human resources professionals, academics, and anyone interested in acquiring an understanding of current issues affecting arbitration and litigation.

What others are saying about this presentation...

"Excellent overview of the risk created by participating in online media. Because of what I learned today, I will be much more careful and mindful of the things I post on Twitter or Facebook."

"It brought to light many issues that one may not normally consider."

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