PLI's Securities Arbitration Program Announced

Professor Jill Gross over at the ADR Blog has a post announcing that registration is open for PLI's program on Securities Arbitration, which she chairs. I have been on a few panels at this event, and it is a great program.

From Professor Gross' post:

Annual PLI Securities Arbitration Program


In the past year, FINRA sought SEC approval of major rule changes empowering customers to choose an all-public panel in their cases and significantly improving the Discovery Guide, and the Supreme Court once again reaffirmed its interpretation of the Federal Arbitration Act as codifying a strong national policy favoring arbitration. To get the latest information on FINRA Dispute Resolution’s rule changes, website changes and updates to arbitrator training materials, don’t miss Securities Arbitration 2011.

This year’s program will once again include an expanded series of panels featuring FINRA’s Director of Arbitration and his staff. You’ll also receive practical tips from arbitrators, mediators, experienced attorneys who represent both customers and industry players, and regulators and academics on:

  • Drafting claims and answers
  • Preparing witnesses and exhibits
  • Using pre- and post-hearing briefs
  • Initiating settlement discussions
