    Drafting a Reasoned Award is the endgame in all arbitrations. Arbitration awards should satisfy certain basic formal requirements. A record needs to be made regarding the panels arbitral jurisdiction, when and where the evidentiary hearings took place, who presided and who appeared as counsel on behalf of the parties and who testified at the hearing. The primary audience for a reasoned award is the parties and their counsel- particularly the non-prevailing party. Most significantly, the target audience is someone who never appeared before the arbitrator-the lurking potential for a judge who may review the award on a potential motion to confirm or vacate the award. Learn about how to tell the story, the narrative of what took place at a hearing. You will also learn about the Rules of different ADR providers and how those rules impact the type of award that should be issued. The program is not only geared to neutrals but litigants might also benefit from hearing what arbitrators need from litigants in order to draft a reasoned award.
