Schwartz Lecturer Chris Drahozal Questions Supreme Court Arbitration Decisions

Prof. Chris Drahozal delivers the 2013 Schwartz Lecture on “Error Correction and the Supreme Court’s Arbitration Docket."

What is it about arbitration law and the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) that results in error correction and factbound decision-making playing such a significant role in the Court's decisions? That question formed the focus of University of Kansas Law Professor Chris Drahozal’s 2013 Schwartz Lecture in Dispute Resolution, held on March 28, 2013 in Saxbe Auditorium.

NLRB arbitration ruling appealed

Chris Drahozal, the John M. Rounds Professor of Law, was featured in a Legal Newsline article on the appeal of a recent National Labor Relations Board ruling.

Tremoglie wrote:

Christopher Drahozal, a professor at the University of Kansas Law School, said the Horton case is a federal-federal conflict rather than a federal-state conflict as is Concepcion.

"The case seems to turn on the definition of "concerted activity" under the NLRA," he said in an interview.
