Leake, Jr., speak on the topic "Arbitrators Are Also Human, or Why Arbitrators Act That Way." Mr. Leake was chairman-elect of the Committee on Pro fessional Liability and had many years of experience as an arbitrator. His talk focused on his personal insights into the motivations and </p><p>functioning of an arbitrator. The arbitration committee's regular program at the Annual Meeting </p><p>was honored by the American Bar Association by being designated as a "Showcase Program." This is an honor given to only a few of the several hundred presentations offered during the annual meeting. The program was entitled "Arbitration in the 80s-How to Make It Work for You" and was cosponsored with the arbitration committees of the Section of </p><p>Litigation and the Section of Corporation, Banking and Business Law. The speakers were Edgar H. Brenner of the firm of Arnold &amp; Porter; Robert Coulson, President, American Arbitration Association; and Mar vin T. Fabyanske of the firm of Briggs and Morgan. The talks were de </p><p>signed to explore the changes and developments in the practice of arbitration that may be expected during the 1980s. The program met with an enthusiastic response from the audience. </p><p>Throughout the year the committee answered various inquiries from the Section leadership, members and others regarding arbitration. </p><p>A project to prepare a bibliography of arbitration literature was started by M. T. Fabyanske and should be completed next year. This document should be of considerable assistance to the legal profession and those involved in arbitration. Ultimately the committee plans to </p><p>produce a manual of commonly used arbitration clauses with anno tations. </p><p>Respectfully submitted, Andrew J.
