The Preliminary Scheduling Conference: Shaping the Entire Process
The preliminary scheduling conference is the key to ensuring that the promise of arbitration – that it be fast, fair and inexpensive – is kept. Properly handled, it should set a detailed format, combining the arbitrator’s philosophy toward the process with the parties’ desires, which provides a customized design to guide the entire process.

– Leslie Sinner McEvoy; Minnesota CLE; Saint Paul
