Diversity Deficit in the ADR World: What Are We Going to Do About It? Presented by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA)
Given globalization and changing demographics in our society, our highest stakes legal disputes increasingly involve parties from different cultural and/or language backgrounds. Diversity should thus be reflected in the make-up of those who are tasked with resolving such disputes. Further, if the general consensus is that we need more diverse attorneys and judges, the same is true with respect to mediators and arbitrators.
The panel will discuss the diversity challenges in the ADR world and how we can best acheive gender and ethnic diversity in this growing practice area.
