Professor Jean Sternlight Writes Article for ADR Prof Blog

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. 16, she wrote for the ADR Prof Blog an article titled Tide Turning a Bit on Mandatory Arbitration Through Recognition that Process Suppresses Claims?

"These have been very bleak times for those, like me, who abhor mandatory arbitration because they think it disserves consumers, employees, and others," her article reads. It continues, "However, the new year may bring some new cause for optimism. As Paul Kirgis noted in his recent post the Consumer Financial Protection Board has just issued a preliminary report providing lots of new empirical information regarding aspects of consumer arbitration."

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