A View From the Bench: How Experts can Assist the Mediator and Arbitrator

Arbitration and mediation differ from litigation in a variety of ways.  Learn how the proceedings themselves differ, how the rules of evidence vary, and the varying role of discovery.  Discover the advantages that arbitration holds over litigation and the greater opportunities for experts and their evidence, including flexibility in selecting experts (especially when technically qualified witnesses cannot be found); the process of "presenting" versus "testifying" and the ways that trial and arbitration testimonies and presentations need to vary; how to handle questions from the arbitrator/mediator.  Learn how to prepare for arbitration versus litigation, when experts may be deposed in an arbitration, how expert reports can differ for arbitration, and the other opportunities that exist for the expert in arbitration versus litigation.  Find out the pitfalls such as the downside of withholding relevant evidence and the way the arbitrator handles purported evidence. 

Join the Northern California chapter of FEWA and learn from a former judge, county commissioner, and active alternate dispute resolution arbitrator and mediator in "A VIEW FROM THE BENCH: HOW EXPERTS CAN ASSIST THE MEDIATOR AND ARBITRATOR"
