The last year has witnessed rapid changes in dispute resolution and the greater legal field. The ubiquity of virtual hearings, innovations in technology, and an increased willingness to engage in arbitration, mediation, and facilitation to avoid the ever-growing backlog of civil case dockets before domestic courts in unlikely to soon abate. The new frontier of legal practice is ripe with opportunities for young and innovative practitioners and the committee is happy to offer a series of articles by our members highlighting recent developments in dispute resolution.
In the coming year, we hope to increase the opportunities offered by the Young Professionals Committee. All suggestions for program ideas are welcome and may be submitted through this online form.
As we work to broaden the committee’s offerings, we are also expanding our leadership team. Those interested in joining the Young Professional Committee leadership team as an officer or liaison to another committee are invited to complete an expression of interest.
The Dispute Resolution Section boasts a large and impressive group of young practitioners and law students. We are excited to work with each of you in the coming year as we further develop both the committee and its members.
