Synopsis By: Lurie - Proceeding Author: Arthur Elliot Berkeley, George R. Fleischli

The author presents the results of a 1987 FMCS survey of advocates who had requested arbitration panels. Those results include demographic information about the advocates, the factors that they reported bore the most weight in their selection of an arbitrator, and the consensus that there are too few women and minority arbitrators in relation to the population served by the profession. George Fleishli then offers some observations about the survey results and the manner in which its conclusions were expressed.
