New York, NY – The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR), a global non-profit organization that manages conflict to enable purpose, is pleased to announce that Ellen Waldman has been named CPR Vice President, Advocacy & Educational Outreach.

CPR harnesses the insights and experiences of its members to prevent and resolve business disputes through its think tank, the CPR Institute.

In her role at CPR, Ellen will write and present on issues of interest to the dispute management community, lead important initiatives in building the capacity for dispute management, and further develop CPR’s academic and student programs.

“We are very excited to have Ellen join our team in this important position. Ellen has been active as a professor in the field of ADR for over two decades. We look forward to her bringing that experience to our constituents and the broader ADR community. For 45 years, CPR has been a leader in thinking about and driving progress for ADR . Ellen will pick up the torch and lead our continuing efforts to push against the leading edge of ADR concepts and practices,” said Allen Waxman, CPR President and CEO.

In addition to having been a long-time Professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, Ellen has had visiting professorships at Peking School of Transnational Law (Shenzhen, China), Quinnipiac University School of Law and Benjamin Cardozo School of Law. Ellen was also the former chair of the International Mediation Institute’s ethics committee, and a task-force member for the California Judicial Council’s working-group on training requirements for court-connected mediators. Ellen is also the former co-chair of the American Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section’s committee on health care and past member of the Section’s ethics committee.

Ellen has published more than 25 articles on numerous dispute resolution topics. She crafted the first book-length treatment of ethical dilemmas in mediation, Mediation Ethics: Cases and Commentaries.
