Method of Instruction
Because enrollment is limited, participants are trained in small groups. Our arbitrators use the “how to” method of teaching. Each student initially participates in classroom exercises and is individually critiqued. Thereafter, students use their training to prepare and present cases to nationally known labor arbitrators. The arbitrators individually critique each student’s presentation and decide the cases. All participating arbitrators are members of the National Academy of Arbitrators. Professional witnesses are used during exercises on direct and cross examination. Attendees are provided a comprehensive course manual.
Some of the outstanding labor arbitration advocates that are pictured on our instructors page will train in each course. Each instructor has been carefully selected based upon their training ability and extensive labor arbitration advocacy experience. The instructors will use their years of preparing and presenting labor arbitration cases to teach attendees winning advocacy skills and techniques.
Some of the nationally recognized arbitrators pictured on our Arbitrator’s page will participate as arbitrators in each course. All of the arbitrators are members of the National Academy of Arbitrators and have served as neutrals in hundreds of labor arbitration cases.
A comprehensive Labor Arbitration Advocacy Manual, prepared by the arbitrators exclusively for this course, will be given to each attendee. Each attendee will also receive a CD of the manual for easy reference in actual arbitration’s. These materials are available from no other source and are not sold separately. The manual and CD serve as a practical reference source for the subjects covered in the course. They will alleviate the necessity of taking extensive notes so that attendees can concentrate on the instruction.
