JAMS’s New Mass Arbitration Procedures and Guidelines: Guidance for Practitioners

Collin Vierra

On May 1, 2024, JAMS implemented long-awaited mass arbitration procedures, including an alternative mass arbitration fee schedule. Because arbitration is a creature of contract, JAMS’s procedures will not apply automatically to all cases. Practitioners should familiarize themselves with these new procedures to decide whether to incorporate them into their arbitration agreements, and to conduct their arbitrations—whether on the claimant or respondent side—more effectively under them. 

This presentation will discuss the developments that led to JAMS’s adoption of these procedures, strategies for arbitrating under them, and what uncertainties remain.
