MEDIATION 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.
