Larson presents at UN, interviews with Fox 9


Professor David Allen Larson recently delivered a presentation at the United Nations Headquarters as part of the Fifth session of the Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Larson’s presentation was entitled: "Access to Justice for Persons with Disabilities: Global Forum on Law Justice and Development e-discussion, Law School Programs, and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)/Technology Mediated Dispute Resolution (TMDR)."

Larson also attended the American Bar Association Law Student Division Competition Committee planning conference for the 2012-2013 academic year. The committee reviewed and discussed the national appellate advocacy, client counseling, negotiation, and arbitration student competitions. Larson also made a presentation regarding the student competitions issues discussed at the 2012 ABA Section of Dispute Resolution annual meeting in Washington, D.C. Larson has been a member of the arbitration subcommittee the past four years.

Larson spoke with the media earlier this month as well. He appeared on a live television interview with KMSP Fox 9 News to discuss the Chicago Public School teachers’ strike and address the question of whether the same type of strike could take place in Minnesota. The interview also was posted on other Fox news affiliate websites, including Philadelphia.

In addition, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal and the Star Tribune interviewed Larson regarding the Hartford Financial Services Group lawsuit alleging that three former vice-presidents took confidential information from Hartford to their new employer, Allianz Life Insurance Co. of North America. The Star Tribune article focused on the risks created when confidential business information is stored in a digital format.
