ADR Ethics in a Changing World
Start Date: 10/4/2013Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 10/4/2013End Time: 12:00 PM

Event Description:
8th Annual Alternative Dispute Resolution Symposium
ADR Ethics in a Changing World
October 4, 2013
James B.M. McNally Amphitheatre

Why You Should Attend:
Mediation has developed into a form of dispute resolution as quintessential as traditional adversarial procedures.  As use of mediation has increased in frequency and complexity across the world, it has become especially important to pinpoint ethical benchmarks to the process.  In her keynote, Professor Ellen Waldman will provide a unique and informative prospective on how to approach issues surrounding ethics in mediation.  Participants will then have the opportunity to share and develop their own ideas in small groups.  Our panelists will then further the conversation by offering their own perspectives.

What You Will Learn:
At the Symposium, Professor Waldman will explore various efforts and challenges to developing ethical standards for the heterogeneous use of mediation around the world.  Participants will have the opportunity to explore how a rapidly-changing global landscape of mediation has colored the discussion of ethics in its use, though the exploration of traditional ethical theory and contemporary considerations.

Who Should Attend:
Practitioners who are interested or involved in alternative dispute resolution will find the Symposium especially relevant.  However, anyone with an interest in the exploration of ethics in dispute resolution is also encouraged to attend.
