Dear Colleagues,

Several days have passed since the first
of the year, but I would like to wish
you all a Happy New Year. One of the
significant Section events in 2013 will
be our Fifteenth Annual Spring
Conference in Chicago, Illinois on
April 3-6, 2013 at The Fairmont
Chicago, Millennium Park. The Fairmont is a few short
steps away from area attractions, restaurants and shopping.
Take a glance at the conference schedu__ , I am certain you
will find programs that will broaden your knowledge,
sharpen your skills, and enhance your approach. Senator
George J. Mitchell and Judge Richard Posner will be the
conference keynote speakers. With over 250 leading ADR
practitioners presenting 90 concurrent programs the
conference provides a great opportunity for both learning
and networking. The conference begins with the
Symposium on ADR in the Courts (on Wednesday, April
3rd) and ends with the Legal Educators Colloquium and
the International Committee Workshop (on Saturday, April
6th). The Symposium on ADR in the Courts, Legal
Educators Colloquium and International Committee
Workshop may also be purchased as stand-alone events.
The Planning Committee has worked diligently to ensure
that this year's conference is full of interesting and
informative programs that will challenge and engage you.
If you've never been to the Spring Conference, I urge you
to take advantage of the First-Time Attendee special
registration rate.

Representation in Mediation Competition Closes Soon!
The Section's Representation in Mediation Competition
provides law students the opportunity to role-play as
advocates and clients in a mediation setting. The competition
encourages students to model appropriate preparation for,
and representation of, a client in mediation. Each team
consists of two students. In each round of the competition
one student plays the role of an attorney and the other plays
the role of the client. The ten regional competitions are
scheduled in late February or early March. The winners of
the regional competitions are invited to compete at the
National Finals in April, 2013 in conjunction with the
Section's Spring Conference. Regional competition sites are
filled on a first-come, first-served basis, after which teams
are assigned to other regions based on availability. Priority
for regional assignments is determined by the date the
school's registration form is received. Registration closes on
January 25, 2013.
