Frank Sander speaks of how he became involved in negotiation and dispute resolution, emphasizing that it was more of an evolving path laid before him rather than a conscious choice to change from family and tax law.
Professor Frank Sander was a leading expert on alternative methods of dispute resolution and is one of the pioneers of the field. Among other innovations, one of his early papers put forth the idea of the "Multi-Door Courthouse," a court system that helps direct disputants to the most appropriate route to resolution.
