In consideration of being allowed to use the facilities and participate in programs and events at operated by Wilderness Leadership Institute (WLI) the participant, and the participant’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s) if the participant is a minor, do hereby agree, to the fullest extent permitted by law, as follows:
The participant, and the participant’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s), if participant is a minor, hereby agrees to submit any dispute arising from participation in the programs to binding arbitration. Submission shall be unlimited. For such disputes, there shall be a three-member arbitration panel, consisting of two party-appointed arbitrators (one arbitrator to be appointed by each party) and one neutral arbitrator (collectively, the “Panel”), to be chosen by the party-appointed arbitrators. The neutral arbitrator shall be an officer or director of any entity that operates an adventure education and training program in the United States. In the event that the two party-appointed arbitrators are not able to agree on a third, neutral arbitrator, the neutral arbitrator shall be appointed by the United States District Court, for the District of Southern California, utilizing the selection criteria for the neutral as set forth above. Each party shall pay its own costs, including the costs associated with the party-appointed arbitrators, and the parties shall share equally the costs associated with the neutral arbitrator. The arbitration proceeding shall proceed in the county and state in which the Programs occurred and shall be governed by the Federal Rules of Evidence. The Panel shall establish a reasonable and appropriate discovery schedule to expeditiously resolve this matter. As a threshold matter, the Panel shall confirm whether the waiver and release contained in this agreement are enforceable under applicable law.
