Scott McElhaney presented a one-hour CLE program entitled “Enforcing and Avoiding Arbitration Clauses” to the Dallas Bar Association’s Trial Skills Section. Scott discussed how courts analyze the creation, validity, and scope of arbitration agreements, as well as developments on clauses that delegate issues of arbitrability to arbitrators themselves and recent Supreme Court and Fifth Circuit case law.

The presentation will take place at noon on Friday, February 9 at the Belo Mansion in Dallas, Texas. All CLE courses are free to Dallas Bar Association members.
