Mangano Award Goes to John Lande

John Lande_WebCongratulations to our co-blogger John Lande, the winner of St. John’s University’s inaugural Mangano Dispute Resolution Advancement Award!

The $5000 annual award honors researchers whose published empirical research has furthered the advancement and understanding of the values and skills of dispute resolution. It was established through the generosity of Hon. Guy J. Mangano ’55, ’83HON, who has dedicated his 40-year career to promoting the study and practice of dispute resolution.

A committee of educators and researchers from St. John’s led by Professor Elayne Greenberg, Director of the Hugh L. Center for Dispute Resolution, selected Professor Lande from a field of highly qualified candidates. The committee focused on the quality of research and findings that Professor Lande shares in his article, “A Framework for Advancing Negotiation Theory: Implications from a Study of How Lawyers Reach Agreement in Pretrial Litigation,” 16 Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution 1 (2014). Building on his book, Lawyering with Planned Early Negotiation: How You Can Get Good Results for Clients and Make Money (soon to be released in its second edition), the article draws from his interviews with respected lawyers about their real-life pretrial negotiations.

Professor Lande will receive the Mangano award will at the Carey Center’s annual reception on April 16, 2015.  If you would like to attend, please RSVP at johnsos1@stjohns.edu. If you are interested in reading the full story on the award and related selection process, you will find it here.
