The Section of Dispute Resolution
sponsored and cosponsored a series of
high quality and well attended programs
during the ABA Annual meeting, July 6-8,
2000. The ADR Track in NYC had twelve
sessions all cosponsored by the DR
Section. Leading the way was a couple of
Presidential Showcase choices that
focused on honesty and truth-telling and
the role of the lawyer in the 21 century
respectively. Jonathan Marks led a lively
discussion around the question of whether
to tell the truth while negotiating a
settlement or participating in AI)R.
Discussion of the session topic has
continued in print and on the Internet
beyond the close of the annual meeting.
The truth telling session focused on issues
raised by lawyers representing clients in
disputes believing they hold themselves
to high ethical standards yet facing
innumerable situations in litigation,

settlement negotiation and mediation in
which telling the truth, the whole truth,
and nothing but the truth may be or seem
inconsistent with accomplishing their
clients' objectives. Presenters examined
whether the Rules of Professional Conduct
and other ethics guidelines provide
enough practical assistance to lawyers
facing truth-telling challenges. This panel
of trial lawyers, ethics and dispute
resolution experts explored critical real-life
truth-telling dilemmas, and suggested
practical and ethical solutions.
Judge Richard Posner delivered the Ilth
Frank E.A. Sander lecitre with a discussion
of mediation and the problem-solving. A
panel made up of the country's leading
practitioners and legal observers
discussed a problem-solving approach to
lawyering. The panel examined the impact
that mediation and a problem-solving
approach are having on the profession,
civil law, justice institutions, community
and public safety, and implications for
future practice.

Another exciting session, Cross Border
Arbitration in the Modern Global
Economy, focussed on international
arbitration in the fast moving modern world
economy where slow relief is no relief.
Presenters discussed domestic arbitration,
dispute resolution problems created by the
increasing international scope and velocity
of commerce and its launch into
cyberspace, and the peculiarities and
developments in arbitration specific to
Asia, Latin America and Europe.
A session on applications of ADR to a
variety of practice areas, including the
entertainment and franchising industries,
business to business c-commerce
transactions, and big ticket federal
contracting disputes proved popular.
Annual Meeting programming was
rounded out by a presentation on the
Mediation of Discrimination Complaints:
Serving the Parties' Interests or
Undermining Public Policy?
