Professor David Allen Larson is a Senior Fellow at Hamline's Dispute Resolution Institute and a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation. He teaches Arbitration, ADR and Technology, Torts, Employment Discrimination Law, Employment Law, and Labor Law. He was the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the "Journal of Alternative Dispute Resolution in Employment" (CCH Inc.), served as an arbitrator for the Omaha Tribe, was a Hearing Examiner for the Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission, and currently is an independent arbitrator.


Larson has published more than 50 articles and book chapters and has made more than 120 professional presentations in Australia, Austria, Canada, China, England, Ireland, Sweden, and the United States. His recent articles have focused on technology mediated dispute resolution (TMDR), a term that includes more technologies than the phrase online dispute resolution (ODR). He also has written about arbitration, cross cultural negotiation, and employment law. Larson has been a leader in the American Bar Association (ABA), and his many assignments include an appointment as chairperson for the ABA Law Student Division Arbitration Competition (2010-2012). He continues to serve as a member of that ABA subcommittee. Previous appointments include serving as vice-chair for the Section of Dispute Resolution, Law School Education and Dispute Prevention Committee and vice-chair for the International Law and Practice Section, Employment Law Committee. He also was a member of the ABA E-Commerce and ADR Task Force.


From 1990-91, Larson served as the "Professor-in-Residence" at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission headquarters in Washington, D.C. He worked primarily in the Office of General Counsel, Appellate Division, and also worked with the Office of Legal Counsel as they drafted and revised the Regulations and Interpretive Guidance for the Americans with Disabilities Act. Professor Larson previously practiced with a large litigation law firm in Minneapolis.
