The Complete Series
This exciting program on tackling time and cost issues in arbitration was held as a one-day, in-person conference in both New York City and Irvine, CA. To accommodate those who also would like to tone their “arbs,” the AAA® has turned the program into a series of six 60-minute webinar sessions which have been recorded.
Here, you can purchase all six for a total price of $250. If you are intersted in ordering any of the six programs individually as a standalone purchase, please contact AAAUniversity@adr.org. At present, only the complete set of six is available for purchase here through the Bookstore.
