Attend this video-encore program and obtain Certification to become an arbitrator!


With more than 20,000 cases a year concluded at the arbitration level, the Compulsory Arbitration Program in Philadelphia County is one of the most successful programs of its kind in the nation. Compulsory Arbitration in the First Judicial District is controlled by the arbitration rules of the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure and the Philadelphia Civil Rules. Compulsory arbitration was created as a means of efficiently disposing of smaller civil cases and conserving judicial resources by requiring as a first step that such cases be tried before a panel of three local court-appointed attorneys, with the understanding that any party can later appeal from the decision and obtain a new trial.

Experienced practitioners offer guidance and practical strategies to successfully conduct an arbitration and serve as an arbitrator. Receive explanations and examples regarding the following:
Definition of the Arbitration program and introduction to the process
General roles, responsibilities and E-filing
