CPR’s Young Leaders in Alternative Dispute Resolution (Y-ADR) program educates the next generation of leaders on the full spectrum of dispute prevention and resolution mechanisms and offers unique networking and professional development benefits to participants. Through periodic seminars and other initiatives, participants are introduced to CPR and gain an insider’s view into how CPR’s community of corporate counsel, law firm counsel, and other experts in the field are using dispute prevention and resolution techniques to manage conflict to enable purpose. Y-ADR is open to the conflict prevention and resolution community-- attorneys, professionals, academics and students -- 45 years old and younger, or those with less than 8 years of professional experience in international or domestic ADR practice or other areas of conflict prevention and resolution. Y-ADR is at the heart of the organization’s mission to diversify the players in the ADR world and to create a global culture for dispute prevention and resolution.
Y-ADR Steering Committee is the leadership group for Y-ADR. The Committee is chaired by Ulyana Bardyn of Eversheds Sutherland and Jason Klingensmith of General Motors. It is a global group composed of young in-house counsel, practitioners at law firms, and neutrals. To view of a full list of the current Steering Committee, click here.
