When We Listen, People Talk, and Sometimes We Give Talks Too


Professor Ellen Deason served as a guest expert on the WOSU radio show All Sides with Ann Fisher on January 14, 2015, speaking about genetically modified crops. Most recently, Professor Deason flew to New York on February 2-­‐4, 2015 where she served as an observer for negotiations around changes to the UN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), the primary set of rules for enforcing international trade agreements. Professor Deason’s thoughts about the UNCITRAL negotiation process can be found on the Indisputably Blog. She also journeyed to Southwestern Law School in November

2014 for the AALS Alternative Dispute Resolution Section’s 8thAnnual Works-­‐in-­‐Progress Conference

were she spoke on “Neutrality Debates: Can Mediators Learn Anything from Genetic Counselors?”

Speaking of the AALS, Professor Ruth Colker spoke at the AALS 2015 Annual Meeting in Washington DC. Her first panel for the Sections on Disability Law and Employment Discrimination Law looked at “Employment Discrimination and the American with Disabilities Act at 25 Years.” Her second panel discussed Alternative Dispute Resolution in Special Education and was co-­‐sponsored by the AALS Section on Alternative Dispute Resolution and the Section on Law and Mental Disability. It has been a busy year for Professor Colker, who also recently served on a “best practices” panel related to individuals with disabilities who take the LSAT. The panel’s January 26, 2015 report can be found on the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing website.

In addition to his work helping organize the JDR Symposium, Professor Josh Stulberg attended the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution symposium on November 3, 2014. The event was called “Is Mediation a Sleeping Beauty?” and Professor Stulberg delivered a talk on “Heading in an Ugly Direction: Mediator Misunderstanding of Bargaining Basics.” Cardozo Professor Lela Love provided a recap of the symposium for the Indisputably Blog.

Congratulations to ‘04 Moritz graduate and University of Nebraska Law Professor Kristen Blankley on her recent marriage. Finally, our heartfelt best wishes go to Professor Amy Cohen, who welcomed her second child, son Kiva, into the world in November 2014.
