Prior Posts – Arbitration


I was debating someone on legal regulation of contracts and I wound up arguing that the arbitration clauses seem to interfere with individual’s rights to trial, especially when included in the box.

Isn’t this a sneaky deprivation of due process?

Good question.  Sounds like a great question for your civ pro or con law  professors.  Glad you are focussing on due process.  You know it is highly relevant outside the judicial and quasi-judicial process.  In business, individuals feeling that they are not being treated with due process by other businesspeople produces negative consequences for the ill-treater.
