KU law symposium to explore state of arbitration law
LAWRENCE — Legal scholars from universities across the nation will explore the state of arbitration law during the 2011 Kansas Law Review symposium.
“Perspectives on the Current State of Arbitration Law” will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, at the Stinson Morrison Lecture Hall in 104 Green Hall. The symposium is free and open to the public; no reservations are required.
Arbitration is an alternative to litigation in resolving disputes. The parties present their evidence and arguments to a neutral arbitrator, much as they would to a judge or jury.
Presenters will cover a range of topics, including arbitration ethics, the future of class action arbitration in the wake of AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, an examination of Supreme Court arbitration jurisprudence, and due process standards for arbitration.
