Jacqueline Nolan-Haley Receives Award for Best ADR Article

January 25, 2013

Fordham Law Professor Jacqueline Nolan-Haley has received the Outstanding Original Professional Article award from the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR). The award recognizes an article published by academics and other professionals that advances understanding in the field of ADR.

Nolan-Haley was granted the award for her article “Mediation: The ‘New Arbitration’” 17 Harvard Negotiation Law Review 61 (2012). In the article, Nolan-Haley explains that mediation is increasingly moving into the realm of arbitration practice. This directional shift, she argues, is problematic because it clashes with mediation’s core values of self-determination and participation and limits the spectrum of options available to disputing parties, depriving them of mediation’s benefits.

The CPR Institute presented its 30th Annual Awards for Outstanding Scholarship in ADR during its annual meeting on January 17, 2013 at a ceremony held at the Lodge at Torrey Pines, La Jolla, California. The Institute’s Awards Program recognizes exceptional practical achievement and scholarship in the field of alternative dispute resolution. Award criteria focuses on processes, techniques, systems, commitment, and scholarship which address the resolution, prevention, or creative management of major disputes involving public or business institutions between corporations, governments, or other parties.

The CPR Institute is an independent nonprofit comprised of global corporations, law firms, scholars, and public institutions dedicated to the principles of commercial conflict prevention and alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
