The proper role of party-appointed arbitrators in arbitration proceedings is a much debated topic.  How can we preserve the right of the parties to appoint their arbitrators and guarantee the fairness and impartiality of arbitration?  Join us for a breakfast program at Jenner & Block LLP in Chicago at which a distinguished panel will discuss the innovative screened selection process for the selection of party-appointed arbitrators available under the CPR Arbitration Rules.  The panelists will share their experience and thoughts about the process from the perspectives of the users, outside counsel and arbitrators.
