8th Annual Alternative Dispute Resolution Symposium

ADR Ethics in a Changing World

On Friday, October 4, 2013, Fordham Law School’s ADR & Conflict Resolution Program will present its Annual Symposium, ADR Ethics in a Changing World. 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.

Ellen Waldman – Professor of Law, Thomas Jefferson School of Law, San Diego
