“For Whom the Bell Tolls” in the Legal System: Access to Justice and Conflict Engagement
Remarks adapted from presentation: Disrupting Law, Reclaiming Justice, a Conversation on Gillian Hadfield’s Rule for a Flat World on October 8, 2018 at Creighton University. Despite the advancement in the ADR movement, there is much work to be done for justice to be accessible to “All.” The legal profession continues to lack diversity among its members and a uniform way of thinking impedes a transformative change to the legal infrastructure. Conflict as an interdisciplinary field draws upon a more diverse group of professionals and theoretical frameworks. I propose that conflict processes, not the legal system, should be the overarching umbrella under which all conflict resolution/engagement processes fall.
