On November 4, 2016, The Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution hosts “Philosophy, Technology, and ADR: Examining Development in Dispute Resolution Systems”, (register here; details here) a Symposium in honor of our late Dean Chris Fairman. The symposium line-up is cutting-edge and reflective:
• Moritz negotiation Professor Katrina Lee will host the morning conversation with a focus on technology. Esteemed panelists include Modria’s Colin Rule, MitchelHamline’s David Larson, Director of the National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution Ethan Katsh and La Verne’s Susan Nauss Exon.
• Moritz ADR expert Professor Ellen Deason will host the first afternoon panel discussion, honing in on one of Dean Fairman’s primary academic interests, collaborative law. Moritz Alum and Nebraska Law Prof. Kristen Blankley, Harvard Law Prof. David Hoffman, and Moritz alum Robert Petroff will join Prof. Deason.
• Lunch will be provided for registered guests.
• Harold Abramson will host Pepperdine Law Prof. Maureen Watson, Touro Law Prof. Harold Abramson, Santa Clara Dean Lisa Kloppenberg and ADR expert Richard Fullerton in a discussion of ethical issues in different dispute resolution systems.
• Attendees are eligible for 4.5 hours of CLE credit, including 2.5 hours of ethical and professionalism credit.
As many Moritz alumni are well-aware, Dean Fairman was a preeminent scholar whose writing often focused on the intersection between attorney ethics and alternative dispute resolution, specifically, collaborative law. Some of Dean Fairman’s notable Alternative Dispute Resolution articles include:
• Interplay Between Mediation and Offer of Judgment Rule Sanctions, 26 OHIO ST. J. ON DISP. RESOL. 327 (2011)
• Growing Pains: Collaborative Law and the Challenge of Legal Ethics, 30 CAMPBELL L. REV. 327 (2008)
• Why We Still Need a Model Rule for Collaborative Law: A Reply to Professor Lande, 22 OHIO ST. J. ON DISP. RESOL. 707 (2007)
• A Proposed Model Rule for Collaborative Law, 21 OHIO ST. J. ON DISP. RESOL. 73 (2005).
• Ethics and Collaborative Lawyering: Why Put Old Hats on New Heads?, 18 OHIO ST. J. ON DISP. RESOL. 505 (2003).
JDR’s November 4 symposium is one of many Moritz events dedicated to Dean Fairman. Last fall the Mayhew-Hite Report dedicated Volume 14, Issue 1 to Dean Fairman. Take a look at moving tributes from Moritz-affiliated dispute resolution faculty, Ellen Deason, Joseph B. Stulberg, James K. Lawrence, Nancy H. Rogers, Sarah Cole and Rishi Batra. Colleagues, students and alumni discussed Dean Fairman’s lasting impression on the Moritz website. The Ohio State Law Journal’s most recent issue includes moving tributes from Daniel Markovitz, Moritz Dean Alan Michaels and Moritz Prof. Marc Spindelman.
We hope to see you on November 4. Register here.
