We invite law faculty from around the world who are interested in comparing approaches and gathering new ideas for teaching, as well as discussing the relationship between ADR in the classroom and in law practice.
This two-day conference will combine plenary sessions focusing on teaching all types of ADR courses with breakout tracks for professors interested in mediation, negotiation, arbitration, and ADR overview (survey) courses.
All sessions will emphasize interactive discussion among panelists and seminar participants.
What does the past tell us about the future of teaching ADR in law schools? Cycles? Trends? What is different? What is the same?
