In a new format for GAR Live, this session will replicate a US senate committee hearing with a succession of witnesses being ‘grilled’ by a panel of GAR Live inquisitors, who are seeking to get to the bottom of a problem.

This panel will explore why some clients are abandoning arbitration. And ask: Does arbitration have an attractiveness problem? If so, how can we make it great again?
