ADR Faculty on the Move

Professor Joseph Stulberg, the John W. Bricker Professor of Law, recently travelled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to be the opening plenary panel presenter on a topic that was named after him: “Mediator Neutrality: The Lessons and Relevance of the Susskind-Stulberg Debate.” This panel, part of a Symposium on the future of court ADR, revisited the famous debate between him and Professor Larry Susskind on how and in what way mediators should influence the outcome of mediations, particularly with regard to third party interests. In front of an audience of court administrators, practicing mediators, and legal academics, Professors Stulberg and Susskind found that they are still as much on opposite sides of the debate as they were over 20 years ago.

You Better Believe It!”, which gives an indication of where he stands on the issue. ››Read More
