Join NEACR and the Massachusetts Bar Association for Conflict Resolution Week as we celebrate the many benefits that dispute resolution processes bring to the legal community and the people of Massachusetts.

The MBA’s Dispute Resolution Section is proud to present a series of free dispute resolution related events during Conflict Resolution Week. Whether you are a member of the dispute resolution community or a member of the public interested in conflict resolution, there is something for everyone.

On Thursday, October 18 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, the week's final and premier event will be held in the form of a Conflict Resolution Day Reception at the Harvard Law School in Cambridge, MA. The event will be co-sponsored by NEACR and MBA, and will serve as the NEACR Fall Program. Attendance is free, but registration is requested in advance. 

During this reception, the MBA will honor the memory and legacy of Frank Sander, a luminary in the field of conflict resolution, by bestowing its inaugural MBA Professor Frank E.A. Sander Award in Dispute Resolution to David A. Hoffman, the founding member of Boston Law Collaborative LLC. Hoffman has dedicated decades to studying, advocating, practicing, educating, writing, articulating and evolving dispute resolution. A teacher and peacemaker, Hoffman models dispute resolution skills and behaviors for the improvement of the field and the benefit of humanity.

Special guest Robert Mnookin, a leading scholar in the field of conflict resolution, will provide an inside look at dispute resolution today, during a Q&A session. Mnookin is the Samuel Williston Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, the chair of the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, and the director of the Harvard Negotiation Research Project.

In addition, Gov. Charlie Baker’s proclamation recognizing Oct. 18 as Dispute Resolution Day in Massachusetts will be presented at the reception. While the event is free, RSVP through the MBA's registration page is requested. Please click here to register and find more information
