The title of Mr. Kelly's presentation was "Arbitration, Creature of Contract: The Devil Is In the Details."

Former Director of Dispute Resolution Services for CPR, Mr. Kelly has had the opportunity to review the ADR provisions of a large number of arbitration agreements and to consider whether those agreements addressed the issues presented in planning the arbitration process.
