The Section’s D’Alemberte-Raven Award is the Section’s highest honor and was created to recognize outstanding service in dispute resolution.
This award was approved by the American Bar Association Board of Governors and was created to recognize outstanding service in dispute resolution. The award is usually presented in conjunction with the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution Spring Conference. The Section of Dispute Resolution honors Robert D. Raven and Talbot D’Alemberte by using their names in the award title. Both hold the unique position of being both ABA Presidents and Dispute Resolution Chairs. Both guided the Section to be a leader in the dispute resolution arena: D’Alemberte as the first chair (1976-79) of the then ABA Special Committee on Resolution of Minor Disputes and Raven as the first chair (1993-94) of the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution.
