“Roger Abrams’ Inside Arbitration: How an Arbitrator Decides Labor and Employment Cases is a book I wish I’d had the capacity and time to write. It is a sophisticated insider’s view of the arbitral process and the legal and practical contexts in which it operates. I recommend it as a must-read for students, advocates, successful arbitrators, and new practitioners alike.” —John E. Sands, Arbitrator, Mediator, and President, The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers “Reading Abrams is like having a lively, informative conversation with one of our foremost chroniclers of the development of labor arbitration. Only now he’s willing to share his blunt, revealing answers to all the questions you might ever have had about the way arbitrators actually decide cases—and even tells you what questions to ask.” —Theodore J. St. Antoine, Degan Professor Emeritus of Law, University of Michigan Law School
