The Center on Dispute Resolution at the Quinnipiac School of Law will launch the “Dispute Resolution Works-in-Progress Consortium,” a new virtual speaker series, on Friday, Jan. 29, from 3-4:30 p.m.

The audience for these virtual workshops will include not only dispute resolution law faculty and experienced dispute resolution practitioners, but also faculty and students interested in dispute resolution from all academic disciplines.

“Creating this virtual community of teachers and practitioners of dispute resolution is perfectly aligned with the mission of our Center on Dispute Resolution,” said Jennifer Gerarda Brown, dean of the School of Law. “Collaboration with other academic institutions has also been a hallmark of the center’s work, so this virtual series carries forward that tradition beautifully.”

Cornelis J.W. Baaij, associate professor at Utrecht Law School, will kick off the program, presenting "Show Me the Money: An Empirical Method for Uncovering Arbitration's De Facto Rules for Damages." Stephen Ware, the Frank Edwards Tyler Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Kansas School of Law, will offer comments following Baaji’s presentation. Hannah Bloch-Wehba, associate professor at Texas A&M Law School, will present "Visible Policing: Technology, Transparency, And Democratic Control." Professor Amy Cohen of University of New South Wales will offer comments following Bloch-Wehba’s presentation.

Quinnipiac is working with the AALS Section of Alternative Dispute Resolution, which for 15 years has sponsored an annual in-person “Works-in-Progress” conference, to develop the new series. In addition to the AALS ADR Section, this consortium includes 12 other nationally recognized law school dispute resolution programs:

  • Arizona State’s Lodestar Dispute Resolution Center
  • Cardozo’s Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution
  • Marquette’s Dispute Resolution Program
  • Maryland’s Center for Dispute Resolution
  • Missouri’s Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution
  • Mitchell Hamline’s Dispute Resolution Institute
  • Ohio State’s Program on Dispute Resolution
  • Oregon’s Appropriate Dispute Resolution Center
  • Pepperdine’s Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution
  • St. John’s Hugh L. Carey Center for Dispute Resolution
  • Texas A&M’s Aggie Dispute Resolution Program
  • UNLV’s Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution

The Center on Dispute Resolution at Quinnipiac focuses on integrating the theory and practice of dispute resolution. Since 1998, the center has created opportunities for both dispute resolution professionals and law students to engage in dialogue and attend training to develop knowledge and skills in this growing field. Quinnipiac’s dispute resolution program was ranked 18th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report in its 2020 Best Graduate School rankings.
