CSDR/LL.M. BROWNBAG PRESENTATION: PROF. RICHARD REUBEN, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 12:10 PM, ROOM 3
Professor Richard Reuben is the Associate Reporter for the NCCUSL Drafting Committee and Reporter for the ABA Drafting Committee for the Uniform Mediation Act. At our first brownbag presentation of the academic year, he will discuss the drafting and recent enactment of the UMA by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws.

The Act establishes a privilege for mediation communications in a wide variety of legal proceedings, and calls for mediators to disclose conflicts of interests in a manner consistent with current ethical standards. The next step in the approval process is for the Style Committee and the chair of the Drafting Committee to develop a final version (which will be posted at www.pon.harvard.edu/guests/uma) to send to the American Bar Association for approval by the ABA House of Delegates in February 2002. The Act has already received preliminary expressions of support from most major ABA sections. After that, the UMA will be sent to the states for consideration and possible adoption.

Please join us for this fascinating presentation. We will start promptly at 12:10 PM on Monday, September 10 in Room 3. Cookies will be provided.
