ADR and Access to Justice: Current Perspectives (at this year’s AALS Meeting)


Courtesy of my Moritz College of Law colleague, Ellen Deason:

As you prepare for the AALS Annual Meeting in San Diego, California, plan on attending the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section’s program on Thursday, January 4 at 1:30 p.m. The topic is ADR and Access to Justice: Current Perspectives. The panelists bring theoretical, practical, and empirical, perspectives based on their dispute resolution work in employment, court-connected programs, minority access, consumer disputes, online dispute resolution, ethics, and international commercial disputes. We plan a forward-looking discussion that compares and contrasts current issues in access to justice from their varied vantage points. The program is co-sponsored by the Litigation section and we encourage you to invite your colleagues in litigation.
