    To Arb or Not To Arb

    1 PM EST

    In several decisions over the past years, the Supreme Court has repeatedly held that mandatory arbitration clauses in a broad variety of contracts are enforceable, including provisions that effectively preclude class actions and require arbitration of antitrust matters.  In 2017, Congress introduced Arbitration Fairness Act, which would give litigants the choice of whether to arbitrate antitrust and other disputes after they arise.  This program will feature a lively discussion by advocates for each side of the arbitration debate, including the policy issues raised by limiting antitrust remedies to arbitration without the possibility of class relief.
