Professor Maureen Arellano Weston presented "Arbitration Law Update, Innovative Uses of Arbitration and Technology" at the American Bar Association Section on Dispute Resolution Virtual Conference. Professor Weston's co-panelists were James R. Madison of the University of San Francisco School of Law, Professor Ronald Aronovsky of Southwestern Law School, and Professor Kristen Blankley of the University of Nebraska College of Law. The panel discussed impacts of recent Supreme Court arbitration cases, significant developments in arbitration, including new protocols for virtual arbitration under COVID-19, and innovations in consumer and commercial arbitration.
The 22nd Annual Spring Conference of the ABA Dispute Resolution Section, themed "Improvise. Innovate. Inspire," was originally scheduled for April 2020 in New Orleans. The conference theme resonated with new meaning as the pandemic events caused the conference to shift to a virtual format and online for five days, from May 18 to May 22, 2020. The virtual conference platform allowed attendees to participate in educational programs and networking activities from their computers, telephones, and mobile devices. Each day included at least four webinars, featuring esteemed experts in their fields.
