Co-edited by Edna Sussman, Laura A. Kaster
and Sherman Kahn, this premier journal, the New York Dispute Resolution Lawyer,
covers all aspects of dispute resolution processes. It
includes a regular column on ADR ethics and thought provoking articles on
practice developments, legislation and hot topics impacting neutrals, advocates,
and parties to arbitration and mediation as well as the entire spectrum of
ADR. It includes the white papers produced by the Section
and reports on the Section’s Committee activities.
In the first five years,
the publication has gained wide recognition as a comprehensive and incisive
source of information about ADR. It covers both domestic and international issues including commercial and investor state issues. The articles have been diverse and all encompassing. The publication reported on
relevant new rules, guidelines and directives issued by the New York Courts,
ICDR, CPR, UNCITRAL, ICC, FINRA, the EU Commission, CCA, CIArb, and
others. The Journal has addressed and will continue to
investigate the impact of neuroscience on ADR. Analyses of important recent
decisions in the field were addressed in thoughtful articles and case notes.
Discussion of model acts on arbitration, mediation and collaborative law set the
stage for consideration for their adoption in New York. Updates on Congressional
developments were provided. The publication regularly offered a review and
analysis of relevant Supreme Court decisions and kept our readers up to date as
these Supreme Court decisions were construed by the courts.
The New York Dispute Resolution Lawyer has to date
also published two theme issues. The first theme issue
published in the Spring of 2009 offered fifteen perspectives on combinations of arbitration and mediation (arb-med and med-arb) from around the world. Since practice and traditions vary significantly from country to
country, the articles included commentary from every continent and culture to
afford a comprehensive overview. The second theme issue, published in the Fall
of 2010, offered discussions of the many and varied ADR tools in what Folberg,
Golann, Stipanowich and Kloppenberg coined as the “Dispute Resolution Spectrum.”
The publication covered deal mediation, dispute boards, direct discussions
between the parties, with the use of settlement counsel and collaborative law,
assisted negotiation including many forms of mediation, early neutral
evaluation, mini-trial, arbitration, and victim offender dialog.
Law student editors contribute notes on recent
cases enriching the publication and fostering interest and engagement in ADR in
our all important younger lawyer population.
