We believe that, at its best, the law promotes healing. It is an instrument for reconciliation between aggrieved parties and it facilitates peace. Through scholarship and symposia, the Journal serves our profession in this way: it advances the dialogue on making reconciliation a reality through the law.

Our mission is to facilitate intellectual discourse on the rapidly evolving field of alternative dispute resolution. We are committed to publishing the varying perspectives of practitioners, academics, and students—and we welcome you to join us in this meaningful dialogue.
