An ADRIA Event in partnership with FOAJ

This luncheon will be in conjunction with our PD Event Unconscious Bias. You may attend our luncheon as a stand alone event, or register for the full PD Event.

Arbitration Pitfalls & Misconceptions

Whether you're actively involved or just interested in the field, Sabri's luncheon presentation will offer value to lawyers, arbitrators and mediators, and participants in ADR processes or administrative justice.  Sabri's insights and experience in the field of arbitration provide a rich resource of cautions and practical advice that you will not want to miss.  Sabri offers an engaging presentation with opportunities for Q&A.  Noting that issues and perceptions of bias must often be addressed in arbitration processes and awards, Sabri's luncheon presentation provides a fitting introduction for those staying on for ADRIA's afternoon session on Unconscious Bias.
