The big three have varied through history, to include FDR, Stalin and Churchill, to GM, Chrysler and Ford. When it comes to arbitrator selection, the spotlight falls on institutions, counsel, and parties.

Latinas and Latinos have historically been underrepresented in the arbitration field. This need not be so. While getting a start as an arbitrator can be challenging, there are increasingly many pathways for Latinas and Latinos. The Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) Region II and the New York International Arbitration Center (NYIAC) invite you to an evening session in collaboration with the American Arbitration Association-International Centre for Dispute Resolution (AAA-ICDR) with ICDR Young & International (Y&I), the American Muslim Bar Association (AMBA), The Brehon Society of New York,  the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) New York Branch, the Dominican Bar Association (DBA), JAMS, the Long Island Hispanic Bar Association (LIHBA), the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution, (CPR) with CPR’s  Young Attorneys in Dispute Resolution (Y-ADR), the Iranian American Bar Association (IABA), the Miami International Arbitration Society (MIAS), the New York City Bar’s Inter-American Affairs and Arbitration Committees, the South Asian Bar Association of New York (SABNY), and the Queens County Women’s Bar Association.

Panelists will discuss how arbitrator candidates can create a resume and profile to be noticed by institutions, colleagues and parties and selected for domestic and international commercial matters. Bring your questions and come ready to discuss.
