On behalf of the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution I am honored to invite you to the largest educational gathering for the dispute resolution field. The Section’s Sixteenth Annual Spring Conference will be held in Miami, Florida April 2-5, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency which is conveniently located downtown just a few steps away from area attractions and a short drive to the Miami beaches. I am thrilled that we are bringing the conference to South Florida for the first time, a destination that will allow you to enjoy all that the multi-cultural city of Miami has to offer.
Conference registration provides an incredible value, giving you access to concurrent sessions on Thursday and Friday, the Thursday Welcome Reception, the Symposium on ADR in the Courts (on Wednesday, April 2nd) and the Legal Educators Colloquium (on Saturday, April 5th). The Symposium on ADR in the Courts and Legal Educators Colloquium may also be purchased as stand-alone events.
Our conference is the premier meeting place for dispute resolution leaders, mediators, arbitrators, attorney advocates, neutral providers, educators, consumers, and scholars. Presenters and attendees have diverse backgrounds including leading practitioners, academics, advocates, court administrators, corporate users, as well as a variety of dispute resolvers in every field. I ask all of you to remind your friends to reserve the date and attend the conference and to encourage at least one new attendee to come. For those who have never been to the Spring Conference, I urge you to take advantage of the First-Time Attendee special registration rate.
I look forward to seeing you in Miami!
