Labor and Employment Arbitration Award Writing (DR205)
Cornell University’s Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution is pleased to announce its 2015 Arbitration Award-Writing Workshop. This interactive program is primarily designed for arbitrators of labor and employment disputes who desire to strengthen their award-writing skills. Its objective is to provide newer arbitrators what they need most – an honest assessment of their analytical and writing skills. NOTE: The program is also suitable for arbitrators of commercial disputes.
Once participants register for the course, they receive the award-writing assignment consisting of:
- A case study with background information;
- Contract language;
- Witness profiles;
- Party positions.
Each participant will be given a specific deadline to write the Analysis and Decision portion of the award. Participants then submit their award which is then forwarded to the training faculty.
On Tuesday, May 19, 2015, Scheinman Training Faculty will conduct a one-day program on the basics of award writing. That program will also include a discussion of participants’ award-writing assignments.
A short time after the in-person workshop on May 19th, each student will receive their awards with individual comments and suggestions from our faculty.
