Prof. S.I. Strong

In October 2014, the Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution hosted an international symposium, “From Myth to Methodology: Judicial Education and the Art of Judging.” Panelists came from the United States, Canada and Australia and included Judge Duane Benton of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, Chief Justice Mary Russell of the Supreme Court of Missouri and various experts in judging and judicial education.

Papers from the symposium were published in the Journal of Dispute Resolution and are now available electronically.

Professor S.I. Strong, who convened the event, wrote two pieces for the symposium issue. The first, “Judicial Education and Regulatory Capture: Does the Current System of Educating Judges Promote a Well-Functioning Judiciary and Adequately Serve the Public Interest?” in 2015 Journal of Dispute Resolution 1, addresses the intriguing question of whether it is either wise or necessary to allow judges to take a leading role in determining the content and shape of judicial education programming. The second, “Writing Reasoned Decisions and Opinions: A Guide for Novice, Experienced and Foreign Judges,” in 2015 Journal of Dispute Resolution 93, provides judges in the United States and elsewhere with a concise guide on various forms of judicial writing. This article was written in part during Professor Strong’s tenure as a U.S. Supreme Court Fellow based at the Federal Judicial Center.
