Encourages Negotiators to Apply "Golden Rule" in Arbitration
1 - 2
AND ARBITRATION expert Carrie Menkel-Meadow L’74 recognizes
the gulf that exists in people’s ethical behavior. So in this year’s
SHILS LECTURE she suggested an age-old formula for achieving just decisions
in arbitration and mediation: Follow the “Golden Rule.”
Menkel-Meadow, the A.B. Chettle, Jr. Professor of Dispute Resolution and
Civil Procedure at Georgetown University Law Center, said treating others
the way you would want them to treat you is the one rule that transcends
all religious and professional differences.
Her remarks were delivered at the 13th SHILS LECTURE in Arbitration and
Alternative Dispute Resolution, and the first since its sponsor, Dr. Edward
B. Shils, Penn Law alumnus and former chair of the Wharton School’s
management department, passed away last November.
