Presented by Stetson University College of Law
Sponsored by JAMS

About the Event

Join us for a celebration of the 40th anniversary of our interdisciplinary law and policy conference at our new home, the spectacular Wyndham Grand, Clearwater Beach. Join a courageous crew —people just like you— who have done extraordinary things to make higher education safe, compassionate, transparent, accountable, and authentic. In addition to our usual cutting-edge programming we will take time to acknowledge the achievements of interdisciplinary scholars, lawyers, administrators, senior leaders, coaches, experts, students, and others over the last four decades. Together we can chart a course for higher education fearlessly forward as we merge the best instincts of the law with those of educators.

Jennifer Sambito, JAMS Business Development Manager, will be in attendance of this event. For more information regarding JAMS Solutions for Higher Education, Jennifer can be reached at

The Future of Dispute Resolution in Higher Education: The Rise of Mediation
Saturday, February 2, 2019 | 9:00 AM – 11:45 AM ET

Presenters will discuss—generally—the various ADR mechanisms as compared to traditional litigation, including the benefits associated with each. Once context has been established, presenters will specifically discuss mediation, and how that can be incorporated into Title IX resolution procedures.
