The Imperative on Prevention: How Does This Change Your Practice

On Tuesday, June 30th, the ABA Dispute Resolution Section will host a special virtual “town hall” starting at 12pm Eastern time with both full group and breakout sessions to discuss a fascinating topic. 

A Task Force on Innovative Processes of Conflict Prevention led by Section Chair Joan Stearns Johnsen has spent the last several months exploring how we can adapt our skills to conflict prevention through the use of standing and stand-by neutrals as well as deal facilitators.

This task force is focused on effecting the implementation of our dispute resolution techniques at ever earlier stages in order to help manage and maintain relationships and prevent nascent conflict from devolving into litigation.  For more information and to register for the town hall, visit  https://ufl.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_jk51soT-RtqUYEH3ub0jUQ
