18th Annual Members Dinner
465 Davis Court
Thursday, September 29, 2016
Cocktails at 6:00 - Dinner at 7:00
Featuring very special guest Professor Carrie Menkel-Meadow, Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of CA Irvine: “Mediation and its Applications to Good Decision Making and Dispute Resolution”
(Prior to Professor Menkel-Meadows’ talk, The Mediation Society Board will present our annual award for Outstanding Contribution in the Field of Mediation.)
Carrie is a teaching legend and research guru. Her prize-winning article in the 1984 UCLA Law Review depicted the model attorney as a professional who engages in creative problem solving, who probes into the deeper interests and concerns of her client, who encourages consensus and putting out fires rather than seeking glory as an adversarial champion of litigation. Her astounding range of scholarship laid the foundation for the growth of conflict resolution and mediation.
While at Georgetown Law, she served as a volunteer mediator for the courts in DC and trained Janet Reno in mediation during her tenure as President Clinton’s Attorney General. Carrie has taught problem-solving and conflict management literally all over the planet, in more than twenty-five countries. Her decades of innovative research on this field have been captured in several leading treatises and text books that include “Dispute Resolution: Beyond the Adversary Model” (2nd ed.2012); “Negotiation: Processes for Problem Solving”(2nd ed. 2014); and “Mediation: Practice, Policy and Ethics” (2nd ed. 2013) with Lela Love and Andrea Schneider.
