JAMS Arbitration Toolkit

Resources to help counsel prepare for and conduct arbitration under the JAMS rules and determine whether a proceeding should be a streamlined arbitration or an expedited arbitration.

Practical Law Arbitration

In the US, arbitration ( www.practicallaw.com/4-107-6426) is often viewed as an efficient and cost-effective alternative to litigation. Commercial arbitration generally:

  • Gives the parties greater finality to their disputes.

  • Limits (or even eliminates) expensive pre-hearing discovery.

  • Achieves a resolution more quickly.

  • Offers more procedural flexibility than litigation.

JAMS ( www.practicallaw.com/w-000-4901) is a full-service alternative dispute resolution ( www.practicallaw.com/0-107-6391) institution that maintains a roster of neutrals who are available to serve as arbitrators and mediators, many of whom are former judges. This JAMS Arbitration Toolkit offers a selection of Practical Law resources designed to give attorneys a basic understanding of several important aspects of arbitrating commercial disputes under the JAMS rules, including how to:

  • Conduct an arbitration under the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures.

  • Appoint an arbitrator.

  • Determine whether a proceeding should be a streamlined arbitration or an expedited arbitration.

  • Request modification of an award issued by a JAMS tribunal.
