Welcome (back) to our new look at Indisputably.org. On behalf of all of us, I want to wish you a Happy New Year and start of the spring semester. We are redesigning our blog with the new year and looking forward to your feedback and participation. We launched this blog in September, 2007 with the following post:
We welcome you to Indisputably, the ADR Law Profs Blog. We are excited to start an online conversation with colleagues in ADR and those who find their fields overlapping with ours. The four of us differ in our backgrounds and ADR focus, and we hope to showcase those differences with running commentary on the latest work in arbitration, mediation, negotiation, and other dispute resolution processes. At the same time, we are similar in our desire to engage in dialogue that is both scholarly and practical, to dig into the empirical work that is relevant to ADR, and to reflect on the reality of ADR in action, for better and for worse. We will be posting on a regular basis, and we hope that you will add to the richness of this blog by sharing your reactions and comments. Point us to great articles, interesting cases or programs, new research, or even something funny. We also expect this blog to serve as a home for the numerous other resources available in ADR. The links we provide will highlight law school programs, conferences, research sites, and teaching resources available through many other productive colleagues. And so, we look forward to the adventure of blogging and invite you to join us on this journey.
These wishes are even more true today. We now number nine regular contributors and many more “friends of the blog” from whom we receive occasional posts. We would be delighted to continue to receive posts, comments, and suggestions from all of you. We expect that the design and functionality will continue to evolve for the next few weeks. So please also feel free to send any design or functionality suggestions to me directly.
Again, Happy New Year, Happy 2015, and good luck with the upcoming semester.
