James Coben describes his initial attraction to mediation which he saw as a much more rational and effective system of solving problems rather than attempting to solve them through the court.
Professor James Coben, a senior fellow in Hamline's Dispute Resolution Institute ("DRI") which he directed from 2000-2009, teaches civil procedure, dispute resolution practices, mediation, and negotiation. He also pioneered a variety of innovative ADR clinical opportunities for law students, including mediation advocacy on behalf of clients in family law and employment cases. More recently, he has focused his energies on development of international ADR educational opportunities.
Professor Coben created the Mediation Case Law Project - a systematic attempt to catalogue litigation trends about mediation, as well as produce and distribute innovative teaching videos, and other resources to ADR academics, practitioners, and trainers.
