Arbitration Essentials With the AAA. Many in-house counsel know in their gut that arbitration is the most cost and time efficient way to resolve disputes and frequently incorporate it into their contracts. They often invoke the rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or its arbitrator selection procedures. But do you really understand what the AAA rules and procedures are? Have you used the correct contract language that AAA can honor and undertake to perform? Do you know what other services the AAA, a non-profit entity, provides at little or no cost? This includes mediations, holding elections, reviewing employment dispute resolution clauses to ensure they meet due process protocols, and other neutral services. Dwight James, Vice President of the AAA in Los Angeles, is responsible for Native and Northwest issues resolution. He will join us telephonically and share his insights into the AAA and how in-house counsel can best utilize ADR to design a dispute resolution process that fits the individual needs and concerns of your company. 1 General CLE Credit.
