What is Y-ADR?



Young Attorneys in Alternative Dispute Resolution

CPR’s Young Attorneys in Dispute Resolution (Y-ADR) program promotes the full spectrum of dispute resolution mechanisms with the younger generation of lawyers – i.e. those who are 45 years old or younger or those with less than eight years of professional experience in international ADR practice.  Through periodic seminars and other initiatives, Y-ADR participants gain an insider’s look at the role of dispute resolution processes and practices in corporations and multinational organizations.  More importantly, they have an opportunity to network with in-house counsel and experts in the field.

Y-ADR Steering Committee is the leadership group for Y-ADR.  The Committee is chaired by Dana MacGrath of Sidley Austin LLP and is composed of young in-house counsel and practitioners at leading law firms around the world.  CPR’s Y-ADR Steering Committee members are selected through a competitive vetting process and serve for a two-year term.

Y-ADR Seminar: Lessons learned in the design of dispute management systems

Brazilian practitioners are becoming increasingly acquainted with the design of dispute management systems. Much more than a mere alternative to court litigation, such systems can be tailored in such a way that they become adequate to address the peculiarities of each dispute, offering more efficient and humane results. At this seminar, organized as a prelude to the CPR's fourth Business Mediation Congress in Rio de Janeiro, accomplished practitioners will share their reflections regarding the opportunities and difficulties involved with the design and implementation of dispute resolution systems based on their real-life experience in dealing with mass complex claims.
