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.
