AALS Alternative Dispute Resolution Section 15th Annual Works-in-Progress Conference

The University of Oregon School of Law is thrilled to host the 15th Annual AALS ADR Section Works-in-Progress Conference in Eugene, Oregon, from Thursday, October 6, through Saturday, October 8, 2022. 

Since 2007, the Works-in-Progress Conference (WIP) has brought together dispute resolution scholars and researchers to share their ideas and discuss their work in a rigorous and collegial atmosphere. Projects at any stage are welcome. The goal of the WIP is to cultivate a supportive environment for participants to learn from one another.



 

Conference schedule (subject to change, and all times Pacific): 

Thursday, October 6
10:00 A.M.-4:00 P.M.:         Writing Intensive. This is an optional session for focused, deep                     
                                              work on research and writing projects. Participants in the writing 
                                              intensive will have the option of a workshop setting (group) or a
                                              writing circle (individual). The purpose of the writing intensive is
                                              to carve out time, either with others or solo, to focus on writing.
