Have you heard about "med-arb"? In med-arb, the "med-arbitrator" first attempts to help the disputing parties work out an agreement in a mediator's role, but should mediation fail, the med-arbitrator can then assume the role of an arbitrator and render a binding decision. This course will take you through the key issues and elements of this innovative and exciting dispute resolution technique. You will explore the advantages and disadvantages of med-arb, review relevant med-arb case law, and practise the skills required for the med-arb process.
