The Section of Dispute Resolution of the American Bar Association will hold its 14th Annual Advanced Mediation and Advocacy Skills Institute at Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law in Phoenix, Arizona on August 6-7, 2016.  This interactive two-day course is one of the best programs for people interested in learning about from a large national faculty of mediators and advocates.  Each topic is first presented in a plenary session by a panel of experts, but the uniquely popular feature of the Institute is that following each plenary session everyone meets in small discussion groups, each led by experts in the field.  It is a terrific opportunity for both learning from and networking with the leaders in the field.  I will be participating on the faculty, and hope to see you there this year.

Sherman, David Tierney and Shawn Aiken will be discussing the pros and cons of the use of today’s technology in arbitration proceedings during a breakfast  program at the State Bar of Arizona sponsored by the ADR Section on November 8, 2016.  We will be looking at the effectiveness of high tech presentations through the eyes of the arbitrator, and expect many will find some of our observations to be surprising.  We hope it will be a thought provoking and interactive discussion.
Sherman has reviewed Mindwise: How We Understand What Others Think, Believe, Feel and Want by Nicholas EpleyThis book review was published in the Summer issue of the Arizona ADR Forum, the newsletter of the ADR Section of the State Bar of Arizona.
