“Courts, Business and the Economy” Focus of Kentucky Court Crisis Symposium (Part 1)

An expert panel explores the role of courts in maintaining a viable economy.  Beginning with the premise that all businesses need a fair, impartial and efficient judicial system, panelists discuss the growing trend among businesses of opting out of the traditional legal system, and going to private arbitration and other alternative methods of dispute resolution.

The 90-minute session, “Courts, Business and the Economy,”  is part of a Sept. 23-24 symposium on state court underfunding, sponsored by the Kentucky Law Journal, the _ and the National Center for State Courts.

Panelists in order of appearance:

Moderator: Maureen O’Connor, Chief Justice, Ohio Supreme Court

Stephen N. Zack, Immediate Past President, ABA

Lisa Rickard, President, Institute for Legal Reform, U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Jack Jacobs, Justice,  Delaware Supreme Court
