"Hamline has made a unique university-wide commitment to give all its students the opportunity to study conflict and its constructive resolution from a range of cross-disciplinary perspectives. For law students, this means access to faculty with a broad understanding of conflict and a vision of how lawyers can respond to their clients' needs with greater sophistication."

Professor Ken Fox teaches in the Hamline University School of Business and the School of Law. He also serves as university director of conflict studies and is a senior fellow of Hamline Law's Dispute Resolution Institute.

Fox teaches a full range of conflict theory and theory-to-practice courses to undergraduate, graduate and law students. He has also taught, trained and consulted throughout the United States in a variety of settings, including courts, federal, state and local government agencies, regulated industries, schools, universities, workers compensation programs and private and community organizations. Internationally, Fox has taught mediation and conflict theory in England, France, Italy, Northern Ireland and Spain and recently served as a U.S. State Department Fulbright Senior Specialist in law/peace and conflict resolution studies at the Riga Graduate School of Law in Latvia. He is currently part of several on-going civic education and conflict transformation projects with Israeli, Palestinian, Jordanian and Lebanese educators and civic leaders, including work to establish a jointly administered College for Reconciliation and Development on the border areas between these three communities.
