I will be a panelist with many prominent ADR masters and sitting judges on the Global Pound Conference Series event in Los Angeles hosted by USC on March 16th. Launched in Singapore in March of 2016 and finishing in London in 2017, the GPC Series is a not-for-profit global project with the theme of “Shaping the Future of Dispute Resolution & Access to Justice.”
I inquired with the organizing group and as a panelist, they agreed to offer a registration discount to my contacts. You, and anyone in your group can register at the Early Bird rate (even though it has already expired – just select that option when you register), a $75 discount.
Currently scheduled to take place in 40 cities across 31 countries, these conferences will provoke debate on existing ADR tools and techniques, stimulate new ideas, and generate actionable data on what dispute resolution users actually need and want, both locally and globally.
Because California has always been on the leading edge of innovation in ADR work and in developing commercial mediation, our input into this global project is important, and will carry a lot of weight in the final policy recommendations that come out of the global report.
Named for Dean Roscoe Pound (Harvard and UCLA law schools), the results of the GPC Series will be used to produce a global report that will examine the current status of ADR and access to justice around the world.
Judge Dorothy Nelson (ret.), will be our key note speaker. I hope you will join us for a very different, and wonderful event.
