“Borrowing from Lawyers' Dispute Resolution Practices to Reduce Bitter Divides Within Communities"
February 1, 2023
4 to 5 p.m. in-person at Longaberger Alumni House and via CarmenZoom
Over the last few decades law schools have joined other disciplines in offering dispute resolution classes that focus on the use of those techniques in professional and leadership contexts. This lecture will discuss the work of OSU’s cross-disciplinary Divided Community Project, which helps local, state, and university leaders across the nation apply promising dispute resolution -based ideas in a community context to reduce polarization, develop collaborations to advance racial equity, and strengthen democracy.
