West LegalEdcenter is procuring continuing legal education (CLE) credits on behalf of American Arbitration Association. This program is available for CLE credits in New York and Pennsylvania. Credit amounts vary by attendance verification and jurisdictional rules.


Fordham Law School and the Board of Directors of the American Arbitration Association invite you to join us as we bring together some of the world’s leaders on resolving conflicts that result from commerce and trade. These experts will discuss the extent that real access to justice exists to resolve those conflicts.

Global commerce drives economic development for both developed and underdeveloped countries, however that same commerce and trade can result in significant conflicts.  

However, courts in some countries struggle for legitimacy, and even in countries where courts are recognized as competent, they operate with limited resources and with some parties being denied access to justice.

This program will address what role governments, corporations and individuals can play to encourage economic development and improve the way disputes are resolved.
