On Monday, May 18, 2015, the AABANY Litigation Committee and the American Arbitration Association (AAA) co-sponsored a program entitled “Implicit Bias in Arbitration,” which explored the existence of implicit bias in decision-makers like judges and arbitrators through both theory, social science research, and anecdotal evidence.  The approximately 35 attendees participated in an interactive presentation conducted by Professor Rachel Godsil of Seton Hall Law School, after which she joined distinguished arbitrators Tai-Heng Cheng and Carol Young on a panel discussion moderated by Theo Cheng, Chair of the AABANY ADR Subcommittee.  A networking reception followed.  Many thanks to the AAA for its assistance in promoting the event and for providing financial support, as well as to James Yu and his law firm Seyfarth Shaw LLP for hosting the event.
