    ACR Chicago Presents a Virtual Brown Bag Lunch Program on ADR Practices in Germany

    Hosted by our German colleague, Philipp Wagner. 

    Philipp will present on alternative dispute resolution in Germany, specifically about the capacity of judges and arbitrators to facilitate settlement negotiations between disputants in the role of a conciliator, a specifically German practice.

    Philipp presented this very interesting program in person over the summer and we loved it so much, we have arranged for him to host a live, virtual program on the same topic for us now that he is back home in Germany as we know many member were not able to attend.
