Professor Sarah Cole
Sarah Rudolph Cole, Squire, Sanders & Dempsey Designated Professor of Law, has been named director of the Moritz Law Alternative Dispute Resolution Program.
Her work on arbitration, the line between public and private adjudication, mediator qualifications, and other dispute resolution topics and her coauthored treatise on mediation and dispute resolution textbook have collectively created an impressive national reputation for her as a scholar in this field.
She has exciting plans for the program, which is consistently ranked among the top five ADR programs in the country.
The program was established in recognition of the need for future lawyers to be trained in an array of dispute resolution methods beyond litigation, including negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. The importance of alternative dispute resolution methods continues to increase as courts explore other means of solving the volume of cases before them.
