Symposium on Mandatory Arbitration

Main Content

The Duke Law Private Adjudication Center and the Roscoe Pound Institute have invited America's leading scholars to address some of the most important issues in dispute resolution at The Coming Crisis in Mandatory Arbitration: New Perspectives and Possibilities, a symposium October 4-5 at the Law School dedicated to the subject of mandatory arbitration. Areas of discussion include: the nature of secrecy in mandatory arbitration, the growing scope of mandatory arbitration, the role that federalism concerns should play in the mandatory arbitration debate and the relative performance of arbitrators versus juries when it comes to decision making. A distinguished panel of law professors, journalists and practitioners will be on hand to offer their insights on the presented papers.
