The Association of American Law Schools (AALS) Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Works-in-Progress Conference was co-hosted by Quinnipiac School of Law and Yale Law School October 13-14 at Quinnipiac’s School of Law.

The conference featured a speaker series of nationally recognized ADR scholars and practitioners.

It was planned and organized by Charlie Pillsbury, co-director of the Center on Dispute Resolution and part-time faculty member, as well as Carrie Kaas, associate dean of experiential education, associate professor of law and co-director of the Quinnipiac School of Law’s Center for Dispute Resolution; School of Law Dean Jennifer Brown; Jennifer Taylor, executive director of the Yale School of Law Arthur Liman Center for Public Interest Law; and Yale School of Law Dean Heather Gerken.

Brown presented Pillsbury with the Inaugural Quinnipiac Center on Dispute Resolution Peacemaker Award, which will be known as the Charlie Pillsbury Peacemaker Award.

“It has long been a dream of mine that Quinnipiac Law would host the AALS Dispute Resolution Section Works in Progress conference. This gathering of scholars and practitioners from across the country (and around the world) is so warm, so generative, and so important to the scholarly vitality of our field that it seemed only natural that Quinnipiac should provide a forum for these conversations,” said Brown. “With support from our cohost, Yale Law School, and propelled by the remarkable organization of Charlie Pillsbury, my dream became reality. It is incredibly gratifying to see Quinnipiac so deeply engaged with this broader community in a way that fosters new ideas and relationships.”
