C.C. Holland, writing for Legal Technology laments the lack of strong female voices among legal bloggers and asks, “Where Are All the Female Law Bloggers?”
Holland may not have looked very hard.
There’s a bunch of us — loud, proud, and outspoken — right here in the ADR blogosphere. We include:
Me, Diane Levin, here at Mediation Channel
Vickie Pynchon, Settle It Now Negotiation Law Blog
Stephanie West Allen, Idealawg and Brains on Purpose
Gini Nelson, Engaging Conflicts
Nancy Hudgins, Civil Negotiation and Mediation
Dominique Lopez-Eychenie, her eponymous French language blog
Jan Frankel Schau’s Mediation Insights
Phyllis G. Pollack, PGP Mediation Blog
Paula M. Lawhon, San Francisco Mediation: A Better Solution
Dina Lynch Eisenberg, Mediation Mensch
Andrea Schneider, Nancy Welsh, and Sarah Rudolph Cole, ADR Prof Blog
(I’m also going to make dispute resolution professional and blogging role model Tammy Lenski an honorary lawyer since no list of women who blog about mediation would be complete without including her and her two blogs, Conflict Zen and Mediator Tech.)
Diane Levin, J.D., is a mediator, dispute resolution trainer, negotiation coach, writer, and lawyer based in Marblehead, Massachusetts, who has instructed people from around the world in the art of talking it out. Since 1995 she has helped clients resolve disputes involving tort, employment, business, estate, family, and real property issues, and serves on numerous mediation panels, including the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Training and coaching are an enduring passion -- she has taught thousands of people to resolve conflict, negotiate better, or become mediators -- from Croatian judges to Fortune 500 executives.
A geek at heart, Levin consults on web design and social media to professionals. She blogs about ADR at the intersection of law, science, and popular culture at the award-winning MediationChannel.com, regarded as one of the world's top ADR blogs. She also tracks and catalogues ADR blogs world-wide at ADRblogs.com, where she has created a community for bloggers writing about constructive ways to resolve disputes.
