On May 18, Judge Timothy K. Lewis delivered the keynote address at the Fourth National Symposium for Minority Professionals in Alternative Dispute Resolution hosted by Capital University Law School in Columbus, Ohio. Judge Lewis’ speech, “Diversity in ADR: Expanding Opportunities for Minority Neutrals,” addressed the on-going difficulty that lawyers of color, and to a lesser degree women, have gaining traction in the field of ADR and offered possible solutions for leveling the playing field and enhancing opportunities for all individuals.
The goal of the symposium was to encourage scholarly dialogue about the effects of ADR on minority groups; the presentations and speeches given at the event will be published by Capital University Law Review in the coming months. The symposium is Capital University Law School’s ninth initiative to increase the number of minority ADR neutrals in the field of ADR and to expand its use of ADR into minority communities.
