The Global Pound Conference is a series of convenings of ADR practitioners, end-users, teachers and students around the world. Its goal is to assess the current state of Alternative Dispute Resolution and to point the direction for its continued advancement.

GPC events have taken place at, or or planned for, London, Singapore, Lagos, Mexico City, and many other places around the world. New York City’s conference will be held at Cardozo Law School on Monday September 12, 20-16.

More information on the Global Pound Conference may be found here. Information on the New York event is found here.

It’s difficult to imagine a more exciting, broader, and more comprehensive event in our field. All in New York City should of course be there on September 12, and others are encouraged to find a gather in near you and take part in this extraordinary happening.
