2017 ADR Symposium Sponsors



Tenth John A. Speziale Alternative Dispute Resolution Symposium Sponsorship


Finding Solid Ground: Environmental and
Land Use Dispute Resolution in CT

Since 1998, the Connecticut Bar Foundation has organized nine symposia focusing on alternative dispute resolution (ADR), all of which have been hosted by Quinnipiac University School of Law. The symposia are named for former Connecticut Supreme Court Justice John A. Speziale, in recognition of his work in the field and his leadership as the first Chair of the James Cooper Fellows. Topics have included community and court-annexed ADR, arbitration, ethics, mediation in criminal justice, and dispute resolution in healthcare.

The 10th Speziale Symposium was held on Friday, March 17, 2017, at Quinnipiac University’s North Haven campus.  The title was “Finding Solid Ground: Environmental and Land Use Dispute Resolution in Connecticut.” Mark Twain’s investment advice was “Buy land, they're not making it anymore.”  The finite nature of land, the increasing recognition of the need to protect natural and built resources, and the greater sophistication of both development advocates and opposition stakeholders has resulted in greater conflict.  This symposium highlighted creative and effective conflict resolution.
