Letter from the Director


Jacqueline Nolan-HaleyI am pleased to welcome you to the the e-newsletter for Fordham Law's Conflict Resolution and ADR Program. Here we will recap past events, preview upcoming programs, and highlight the work of students, alumni, and faculty of the ADR Program.

Our Program offers a rich curriculum that balances theory and real-world casework, reflecting the breadth and span of alternative dispute resolution practice within the legal and business communities.

The Program provides students with unique opportunities to study the field of ADR through renowned clinics and courses offered in negotiation, mediation, arbitration, systems design, conflict perspectives, and international conflict resolution taught by leading academics in the field and experienced ADR practitioners. It also offers students exceptional opportunities to study and work in international ADR programs in Ghana and in Northern Ireland. The Program sponsors annual symposia on critical issues in domestic and international conflict resolution. Finally, our student organization, the Dispute Resolution Society, regularly places in national and international ADR competitions, provides pro bono service by teaching mediation skills in the community, and works closely with the New York City Bar Association to further ADR interests throughout the city.

The Program’s integrated agenda of teaching, scholarship, and practice in conflict resolution models Fordham’s focus on developing ethical, community-building practitioners who strive to enhance professionalism in the field of alternative dispute resolution.

I hope you enjoy reading about the Program and I look forward to seeing you at our events.
