The MU School of Law offers a collegial environment, reinforced by a small student body and a low faculty-student ratio. The intimacy of this setting, coupled with reasonable cost, consistently high bar passage rates, a network of alumni around the globe and access to top scholars in the legal world, make MU Law one of the best values in the nation.
PROF. RICHARD REUBEN PUBLISHES ARTICLE ON SYSTEMS DESIGN IN THE WORKPLACE
Prof. Richard Reuben recently published Democracy and Dispute Resolution: Systems Design and the New Workplace, 10 Harvard Negotiation Law Review 11 (2005). In this article, he argues that workplaces that develop dispute resolution mechanisms fostering the fundamental values of democratic governance will be successful in today's corporate environment. He cautions that some forms of dispute resolution, such as mandatory binding arbitration, however, can erode the very human, social and institutional capital that lies at the heart of the new workplace and can have a negative impact on traditional measures of workplace success, such as performance, retention, and compliance with corporate decisions, rules and policies.
PROF. RICHARD REUBEN QUOTED IN ADR.COM
Prof. Richard Reuben, a reporter for the Uniform Mediation Act, was quoted in ADRWorld.Com's coverage of an important mediation confidentiality decision by the New Jersey Supreme Court with national implications (State of New Jersey v. Carl Williams, No. A-61-04). In this case, the Court ruled that a criminal defendant's right to testimony does not automatically outweigh the need to maintain mediation confidentiality. Reuben stated that this decision sends a "very strong signal that [the court] will support a legislative determination on the importance of mediation confidentiality."
