The American Arbitration Association is now accepting applications for the 2020 AAA Higginbotham Fellows Program, which will be a milestone year – our 10th year. The training component of the Program will be hosted in New York during the week of May 3, 2020. During the Program, Fellows will engage with leading ADR practitioners for an intensive week of training, seminars, and networking events.
Interested candidates can visit https://www.adr.org/HigginbothamFellowsProgram to download a copy of the Program Guidelines and Application or to apply online. This year, AAA will be offering limited scholarships. The deadline for applications has been extended to Monday February 17, 2020.
The AAA created this highly visible, extremely successful one-year program in 2009 to provide training, networking, and mentorship for up-and-coming diverse ADR practitioners, who historically have not been included in meaningful participation in the field. Since its inception, the AAA Higginbotham Fellowship Program continues to exceed expectations with past Fellows making gains in their ADR careers, including those who have successfully advanced to the AAA’s Roster of Arbitrators and Mediators.
