Professors Coben and McAdoo Named “Distinguished Members” by ADR Institute


Hamline was well represented in all the ADR Institute activities of the ADR section of the MSBA in October

Professors Bobbi McAdoo and Jim Coben were among ten Minnesotans honored as "distinguished members" for their activities promoting ADR in Minnesota at a reception celebrating the 10th anniversary of the ADR Institute on October 18.

"This honor and recognition of Bobbi McAdoo and Jim Coben is well-deserved," noted Dean Jon Garon. "Their work in the area of alternative dispute resolution is respected on a national level and is a critical reason that Hamline's Dispute Resolution Institute is so highly ranked and regarded by scholars in the field."

In addition, Professor Coben, Professor McAdoo and Professor Ken Fox all were presenters at the Institute on October 19th: Coben for the Annual Mediation Case Law "Revue," Fox for a review of ADR in Popular Culture and McAdoo for moderating and speaking at the final session of the Institute on The Future of ADR. Professor Fox also was a planning committee member for the event.
