Like Mock Trials, Mock Arbitrations are designed to determine how arbitrators will likely react to a case and identify the case strengths and vulnerabilities. The Mock Arbitration typically follows the flow of an actual arbitration, including opening statements, witness testimony, and arbitrator questions followed by the decision. The mock arbitrators are legal professionals recruited to resemble the actual arbitrators in terms of education and experience, remunerated according to an hourly billing rate, and never told which side is sponsoring the project. Mock Arbitrations allow a test of the arbitration case and offer participants a dress rehearsal prior to arbitration to expose and address case vulnerabilities.
