USC Gould/JAMS Arbitration Institute Webinar Series: The Future of Dispute Resolution
Webinar 2 of 3
Date: August 5 at 12PM PT/ 3PM ET
Much has been said about the present COVID-19 pandemic, but the reality is that most economies are now reopening for business. Corporate counsel, institutions, private practice lawyers and ADR professionals are now faced with the challenge of planning for a future where pandemics and other global disruptions will threaten global business operations again. How should the ADR community react to the challenge of serving the needs of globalized business in a time of pandemics, natural disasters and widespread socio-economic disruption?
Amongst the topics discussed, the panel will consider the following issues:
- Will the role of ADR in resolving cross-border disputes expand or contract? Does the inevitable change in supply chain practices, emphasizing supplier redundancy and resiliency, increase or decrease the need for international dispute resolution?
- What are the merits and challenges of increased use of technology in ADR proceedings? What does recent experience suggest about the effectiveness of remote mediations?
- Is the standard arbitration clause now inadequate in dealing with future economic disruptions? Should special provision in arbitration clauses be made for summary disposition of force majeure and other related claims?
