INTERNATIONAL ADR CONFERENCE
HONOLULU, HAWAII, APRIL 10-12 An International ADR Conference will take place on April 10-12, 2002, in Honolulu, Hawaii. The conference seeks to gather judges, attorneys, ADR practitioners and government and business ADR users from different countries to work collaboratively toward recommended elements and components of model international mediation and arbitration programs and skills development and training. A major purpose of the conference is to help build networks and friendships that will help promote collaborative and convergent international ADR development. The conference is sponsored by the Asia-Pacific Law & Policy Journal and the Inter-Pacific Bar Association, with the support of the East-West Center, the Hawaii State Bar Association Alternative Dispute Resolution Section and others. This conference will take place shortly after the American Bar Association Section on Dispute Resolution conference in Seattle, April 4-6, so some people may want to "piggyback" a trip to the Hawaii conference. For details on registration see the binder in 206 Hulston Hall.
