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.
The CPR Y-ADR Annual Award for Efficient and Effective Collaboration Between Corporate Counsel and Outside Counsel, generously sponsored by CPR Members Assurant, GlaxoSmithKline and White & Case LLP, honors young lawyers who write about efficient relationships between corporate counsel and outside counsel in the context of ADR Proceedings. Every year, the Award is presented to the winner at CPR's Annual Meeting.
