Given the increased consciousness about issues of gender-based violence thanks to the Time’s Up and #metoo movements, coupled with the increasing proliferation of Alternative Dispute Resolution, the symposium will explore relevant and crucial themes. JDR is thrilled to host two dynamic panels and a keynote speaker.

The morning panel, which will run from 10:30 am until 12 pm Eastern time is titled Resolving Gender-Based Violence Disputes on Campus. This panel will be moderated by Leigh Goodmark from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. The impressive panelists include Sarah Rudolph Cole, from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law; Brian Pappas, from Eastern Michigan University; Jennifer Llewellyn, from Dalhousie University Schulich School of Law; Daniel Del Gobbo, from University of Toronto Faculty of Law; and Kellie Brennan, from University of California, Berkeley.

After a break for lunch, our incredible Keynote Speaker, Mariame Kaba, will present from 1 to 2 pm.

The afternoon panel, moderated by Amy Cohen, from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, will discuss the question, Can ADR Change the Response to Gender-Based Violence?
