Video Conference Interviews

This page features links to several video interviews that the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (“CPR”) conducted of Loree & Loree partner Philip J. Loree Jr. and our good friend, arbitrator,  former trial judge, and fellow arbitration-law practitioner, Richard D. Faulkner, about various controversial arbitration issues pertaining to matters the U.S. Supreme Court either has been asked to hear or has decided to hear. Our good friend Russ Bleemer, Editor of CPR’s newsletter, Alternatives to the High Cost of Litigation, CPR’s international ADR newsletter published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., conducted the video conference interviews.
