Challenging the Vulnerable Arbitration Clause: The Defenses Still Available in Many Cases
July 14

Too often, plaintiffs' lawyers give up on promising cases upon learning that somewhere in clients' sales paperwork, job application or the website they visited, a fine-print arbitration "agreement" supposedly foreclosed their right to bring future disputes in court. But not all such clauses are as ironclad as they may first appear. In this webinar, Public Justice Executive Director Paul Bland and Staff Attorney Ellen Noble describe the challenges remaining to mandatory arbitration provisions and explain how to spot and effectively challenge delegation clauses within arbitration provisions.
