The past year has brought dramatic change to our economy and to our world – and that change has had a great impact on the ADR field. Join CPR and our esteemed colleagues for the 2010 Annual Meeting as we explore “Global ADR: The New Reality.”


We are excited about the exceptional program that we have assembled this year. Thursday’s keynote speaker Kenneth Feinberg, recently appointed as President Obama’s “Compensation Czar” to oversee executive compensation at companies receiving federal bailout assistance, will join us to provide his unique perspective on global ADR efforts and the shaping of public policy. On Friday, we are pleased to welcome keynote speaker, author Richard Susskind, whose book The End of Lawyers? put forth a number of controversial and thought-provoking concepts.


Our eight panels will include an outstanding group of leading General Counsel, attorneys, international arbitration and mediation experts, and top academics. Each will offer their expertise on an array of relevant topics including recent Supreme Court decisions, ADR use in Asia, the role of ADR in bankruptcy, conflict prevention techniques, ethics, and the future of ADR. As in previous years, we will begin with CPR’s popular General Counsel panel, who will discuss how their companies have adapted their ADR use to recent business challenges.


CPR is renowned for providing executive-level networking, the highest quality dialogue, and the most practical take-away learning in the field. This year is no exception. We look forward to seeing you in January!


Attendees will be eligible for up to 9 hours of continuing legal education credit, including one hour of Ethics CLE credit, under the rules of the New York State CLE Board.

"I have attended CPR meetings in the United States and in Europe and there is nothing quite like them for sophistication of both the content and the audience. They are informative and provocative, and a terrific forum for exchanging views and experiences with leading minds in the field of ADR."
