First-hand guide to arbitration for practitioners and arbitrators alike, written from the perspective of what an experienced arbitrator looks for in the hearing process.

New Jersey Arbitration is a firsthand guide to arbitration for practitioners and arbitrators alike, written from the perspective of what an experienced arbitrator looks for in the hearing process. Judge Dreier, a retired Presiding Judge of the Appellate Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey, is a long-time arbitrator and mediator. He provides helpful advice with tips on what you can expect in a typical hearing and what will be expected of you.

Robert Bartkus joins Judge Dreier in this new edition, which has been reorganized, revised, and expanded with additional material and cases.

New sections on drafting and litigating arbitration agreements in New Jersey devote particular attention to specific requirements imposed by the relevant New Jersey statutes and recent cases in New Jersey state and federal courts, including the Third Circuit. New sections also expand the details distinguishing arbitration under federal law and the two principal New Jersey statutes, including comparing motion practice in the state and federal courts and the varying standards for compelling arbitration or vacating or modifying an award.

Throughout, the Handbook continues to provide practical guidance for each phase of the arbitration process. As in prior editions, the text identifies specific Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association that may relate to an issue, but this year the text also contrasts those specifics with the rules of other divisions and other providers. The appendices continue to include the text of key rules and statutes, making the Handbook a “must have” at any arbitration hearing. This year, the appendix summaries of recent cases is enhanced by a subject index of the most recent published and unpublished cases (through December 2016) and their official, WestLaw or LEXIS citations, including any appellate changes from the first quarter of 2017.
