For ADR faculty only, not open to the general public.

Hosted by UC Law San Francisco's Center for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution (CNDR) and the Martin Daniel Gould Center for Conflict Resolution at Stanford Law School, we gather law, business school, and undergrad ADR and Negotiation faculty from throughout Northern California to explore new topics and innovations in pedagogy in dispute resolution. It is also an opportunity to connect with others in the field and build relationships.
