Negotiation and Dispute Resolution Program Hosts Scholarship Roundtables 2012 
The Negotiation and Dispute Resolution Program hosts national scholarship roundtables in conjunction with the Washington University Journal of Law & Policy, bringing academics to the law school at the forefront of negotiation and dispute resolution scholarship, teaching, and practice. The fall 2011 roundtable, which focused on “New Directions in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution,” drew academics from 16 law schools across the U.S. and from El Salvador. Articles from the roundtable were published in Volume 39 of the Journal in summer 2012. The event was the second in a new series of Negotiation and Dispute Resolution Program scholarship roundtables, designed to generate cutting-edge scholarship in the field. The first roundtable, held in fall 2009, focused on “New Directions in ADR and Clinical Legal Education. “ Articles from that conference were published in volume 34 of the Journal.
