This new two-day course offering a special emphasis on evidence and witness examination in labor arbitration expands upon the Institute's basic course on Arbitration for Advocates. Designed for those who have had some experience in labor arbitration, the course also should be helpful for those advancing to more complex disputes.
The course has been developed by longtime FMCS Institute instructors who are members of the National Academy of Arbitrators, and who will be the principal faculty for the program.
Those participating in the course will participate in a series of interactive exercises and model scenarios designed to sharpen case-handling skills and familiarity with recurring issues.

Preparing witnesses for direct examination
Cross-examining adverse witnesses
