SYMPOSIUM: ADR and Diversity
A Joint Project of the American Bar Association Business Law Section
and New York Law School
This event will explore the reasons why, in a diverse economy driven by diverse participants, the practice of arbitration and mediation has been persistently homogeneous. Participants will engage in break-out discussions to frame real-world recommendations on what approaches – if any – can accomplish the goal of ADR neutrals’ reflecting the diversity of the disputants with whom they work. Wine and cheese reception to follow.
