From Online Guide to Mediation

Two blogging attorneys, both inventive, smart, and insightful, have each announced the launch of new blogs:

Stephanie West Allen, best known for her work on Idealawg, a blog that reveals the artistry within the practice of law, has devised a new outlet for her creativity--Brains on Purpose, which will traverse the intersection between neuroscience and conflict resolution. She will be joined by research psychiatrist Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D. Knowing the thought-provoking content of Idealawg, I will look forward to discovering the fresh ideas that Stephanie and Jeffrey will be bringing their readers.

Creative ideas from two legal bloggers Meanwhile, Victoria Pynchon, who publishes Settle It Now Negotiation Blog, announces both a new blog and a new focus to her work as an ADR professional. She has joined forces with patent and antitrust arbitrator and mediator Les Weinstein; IP litigator and mediator, Michael Young; and international commercial and IP arbitrator and mediator, Eric Van Ginkel, to launch the IP ADR Blog, an intellectual property blog that examines the cutting edge of technological, commercial, and legal issues, from the perspective of seasoned dispute resolution professionals. This is a blog that likewise I will be following closely.
