Calls for increased diversity among arbitrators have surged with the growth of the employer movement, so-called mandatory arbitration, which requires employees to agree to arbitrate employment discrimination matters as a condition of employment. Representatives for both sides believe that winning is best achieved by selecting arbitrators they know. Join Professor Green as he suggests a different approach that helps address lack of arbitrator diversity.
Professor Michael Green
Michael Z. Green, Professor of Law, has served as a full professor at Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth since the Texas Wesleyan University School of Law was acquired in August 2013. He began full-time teaching as an Associate Professor of Law in 1999 after completing the prestigious Hastie Teaching Fellowship and obtaining his fifth and highest degree, a Master of Law (LL.M.), from the University of Wisconsin School of Law. He joined the law faculty at Texas Wesleyan in 2003 and was promoted to Professor with tenure in 2005. In June 2008, he became the inaugural Associate Dean for Faculty Research & Development and served in that position through May 2012.
A cum laude graduate of Loyola Chicago’s Law School, where he also jointly obtained a master’s degree in Industrial and Labor Relations, he specializes in labor and employment law, discrimination issues, and dispute resolution matters. An accomplished scholar, he has authored more than two dozen scholarly law journal articles and book chapters. In 2013, he became the primary editor of a book that offers a key scholarly contribution to the debate regarding collective bargaining and he received the Frederic White Scholarship Award as the law school’s most outstanding tenured scholar.
An experienced labor and employment mediator and arbitrator, he serves on the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Trial Board, the American Arbitration Association's National Labor Panel, and the FMCS Roster of Labor Arbitrators. He has been a member of the National Academy of Arbitrators since 2019. He has authored dozens of arbitration decisions and awards and mediated many employment law matters since 2007. A sought-after speaker, he has been invited to discuss his scholarly endeavors at scores of venues throughout the nation and internationally.
His 2006 selection as a member of the American Law Institute (ALI) and appointment to the ALI consultative group advising the Reporters drafting the Restatement of Employment Law signaled his growing reputation as a labor and employment law expert. As further recognition of his expertise, he was selected in June 2014 to join the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, “a non-profit association honoring the leading lawyers nationwide in the practice of Labor and Employment Law.” The most recent acknowledgment of his achievements occurred on September 11, 2015 when he received the Paul Steven Miller Memorial Award, determined by peer law professors and given annually to a law scholar who has demonstrated outstanding academic and public contributions in the field of labor and employment law.
Professor Green has taught employment-related law school courses at the University of Georgia, Florida State University, Hamline University, and Florida Coastal. For 2014-15, he served as Secretary of the American Bar Association’s Section of Labor and Employment.
