Religious Arbitration in America:
The Good, the Bad and the Interesting; The Constitutional Law Issues; and Training to Represent Clients at Religious Arbitrations

PRESENTER: Michael Jay Broyde

Berman Projects Director in the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University
Thursday, April 7
9:30 am – 11:50 am ET
One (1) Ethics and One (1) Substantive Credit
Online and in-person simultaneously, three 40-minute sessions 
FEES: $72 attorney; $25 auditor

Registrants can participate in-person or on Zoom. If remote, Zoom camera must be on. Proof of Covid-19 vaccination and masks are required for in-person attendance. 

This CLE will examine the relationship between the Federal Arbitration Act, the US Constitution and arbitration in Rabbinical Courts in the United States (and other religious tribunals as well). It will start with a history of arbitration in America, continue with a review of the Federal Arbitration Act of 1925 and then focus on the recent changes to arbitration law in America and how such changes impact religious arbitration. In particular, we will focus on the recent changes concerning sexual harassment in arbitration law, and the Bixler case in California. We will then examine the rules commonly used by Rabbinical Courts – such as in the Beth Din of America and the Chicago Rabbinical Council -- to conduct arbitrations and discuss both their strengths and their weaknesses. We will also discuss the agreement commonly used in many communities in America to address issues of igun, in light of changes to arbitration law, past, present and maybe forthcoming. Finally, we will conclude with some practice observations about appearing in rabbinical court.

Michael Jay Broyde is a professor of law and the Berman Projects Director in the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University. His primary areas of interest are law and religion, Jewish law and Jewish ethics, and comparative religious law. Broyde has published 300 articles and a dozen books in many different areas. He was the rabbi of the Young Israel in Atlanta for many years, rosh kollel of the Torah Mitzion Kollel in Atlanta and the director of the Beth Din of America.
