the AALS Section on Alternative Dispute Resolution’s  New Voices in Dispute Resolution mentorship program

The AALS Section on Alternative Dispute Resolution announces the call for applications for the 2024-2025 mentorship program entitled “New Voices in Dispute Resolution.”

New Voices in Dispute Resolution is a year-long mentorship program in which junior scholars will be paired with a senior mentor in the field for the purposes of obtaining feedback on their current academic scholarship. During the fall semester, the mentor will be available to discuss one academic project related to dispute resolution that the junior scholar is developing and provide feedback on a draft of the associated article. In the spring, the mentor will host the junior scholar at their institution to present the article, inviting both in person and online attendees.

Past program participants include Henry Wang (Florida State) and Ashley Votruba (Nebraska).

Applicants for the New Voices in Dispute Resolution program should have less than six years of teaching or research experience at a college or university, in any field. Tenure-track faculty as well as scholars who are employed through visiting and long-term contracts are eligible. We will give priority to pre-tenure candidates.

Mentors will be solicited once the New Voices in Dispute Resolution Scholars have been selected.

We will select two Scholars for the 2024-2025 term. Each successful applicant will earn the designation of New Voices in Dispute Resolution Scholar. In addition,Negotiation and Team Resources (negotiationandteamresources.com) is supporting the New Voices initiative by awarding each successful applicant a Stephen B. Goldberg ADR Scholar Award of $1500 for their travel expenses. These awards are in honor of Steve Goldberg whose ground-breaking ADR research and teaching serves as an inspiration for so many scholars. The scholar will bear any expenses incurred beyond the amount of the award.

Applications should include a 1) letter (one single-spaced page maximum) addressed to Kristen Blankley, Chair of the AALS Section on Alternative Dispute Resolution, that describes your interest in the mentorship offered by the program and explains how you meet the New Voices criteria and a 2) proposal/project description (one single-spaced page maximum) for the academic project for which you would like mentorship. Please create a single word document or PDF for these two items and email your combined file to kristen.blankley@unl.edu  

Applications are due August 9th. Please address any questions to Kristen Blankley, Chair of the AALS Section on Alternative Dispute Resolution, at kristen.blankley@unl.edu
