VOLUME 11, ISSUE 3: EDITOR'S CORNER
Welcome to Volume 11, Issue 3 of the Mayhew-Hite Report. As always, the driven students and dedicated faculty at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law have managed to keep very busy over the past couple months. As reflected by distinguished teaching awards, scholarship recognition, top honors at regional and national mediation competitions, and selective organizational appointments, our students and professors truly are “movers and shakers” in the world of ADR. Take a look at our “Headline News” feature for details on these significant accomplishments.
Beginning with the “Student Spotlight”, and as promised in that section last time, we have a fascinating article by Lindsay Nichols (J.D. Candidate, 2013) on the use of ADR methods in the publishing industry. This piece looks at how these mechanisms may be incorporated throughout the life of a publication, using little-known back stories behind the publication of a few of the most significant works of Modern literature as examples.
Drawing on the industry-specific theme present in the “Student Spotlight”, our “Article Summary” and “From our Friends” features look other industry-specific applications of ADR methods. The former features a summary of a Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal article examining the final-offer arbitration system in Major League Baseball and advocating for its utilization in the securities industry. The latter is a short, “best practices” piece, originally published by the American Arbitration Association, that discusses dispute resolution in the golf industry.
Lastly, this issue’s “Lead Article” features a preview of a phenomenal, forthcoming article that discusses conflict management assessment tools and introduces a brand-new “negotiation barometer” created by original co-authors Andrea Kupfer Schneider and Jennifer Gerarda Brown. The Moritz College of Law was fortunate enough to get a sneak peak into Ms. Schneider and Ms. Brown’s “Dynamic Negotiation Approach Diagnostic” (DYNAD) when they presented at the Sixth Annual Works-in-Progress Conference, held here last November. The article, and the DYNAD itself, offer new insights into the world of conflict management assessment tools and personality tests and can be extremely beneficial to both teachers and students of negotiation.
Many thanks to our contributors, and thank you all for reading.
