November 7 event sponsored by the Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution
October 24, 2002
Does the American style of dispute resolution work in international settings? What are the roles of American practitioners in international dispute resolution? What works best to mitigate conflict both within and between societies all over the globe? These questions – and others – will be discussed during a daylong symposium at the Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University on Thursday, November 7, 2002.
"The Americanization of International Dispute Resolution" will consider issues related to the most common methods of dispute resolution: negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and adjudication. Panelists will address a variety of topics: negotiation and the World Trade Organization, mediating armed conflict, international commercial arbitration, and international criminal courts.
Sessions will begin at 9 a.m. in the Saxbe Auditorium of Drinko Hall, 55 West 12th Avenue. For registration information, call 614-292-7170.
Presentations from the symposium will be printed in the Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution, a quarterly scholarly journal published by students at the Moritz College of Law that is also the official publication the American Bar Association Section on Dispute Resolution.
The Moritz College of Law is Ohio’s flagship law school. Approximately 660 students attend classes at the school’s John Deaver Drinko Hall located at 55 West 12th Avenue.
