Professor Jean Sternlight Cited in The New York Times

Jean Sternlight is the Michael and Sonja Saltman Professor of Law and the Director of the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution at the UNLV Boyd School of Law.

On Dec. 6, she was cited in The New York Times article Hyundai Reverses Policy on Settling Warranty Disputes.

Until recently, Hyundai had a policy that required warranty disputes to be settled through binding arbitration, unless Hyundai owners opted out of the agreement within 90 days of purchasing their vehicle.

"Hyundai could also have used its policy to discourage owners who could not afford their own lawyers from joining class-action suits, said Jean Sternlight, a law professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas who studies arbitration," the article reads. 

Sternlight is nationally and internationally recognized for her scholarship and law reform activities in the field of dispute resolution.
