Professor David A. Larson, Minnesota Fellow, Awarded Chair for ODR Empirical Research

October 23, 2018, Fellows in the news

Professor David A. Larson, Minnesota Fellow and faculty member at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, was awarded the Faricy Chair for his empirical research concerning online dispute resolution (ODR). Professor Larson has been involved with ODR for many years and is very excited about this project. The Faricy Chair is awarded to support empirical research, research assistance, writing and publishing articles, and the cost of travel and conferences to bring together scholars and practitioners. The goal is to build clarity and understanding regarding specific legal issues and to support sound public policy. The Faricy Chair can be awarded for empirical research in any field, and the fact that it has been awarded for an ODR proposal represents significant institutional recognition of the growing importance of ODR. 

Professor David Allen Larson is a senior fellow at Mitchell Hamline’s Dispute Resolution Institute and a fellow of the American Bar Foundation and the National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution. He teaches Arbitration, Cyber Skills and Dispute Resolution, Employment Discrimination Law, Employment Law, and Labor Law. He was the founder and editor-in-chief of the “Journal of Alternative Dispute Resolution in Employment” (HeinOnline), served as an arbitrator for the Omaha Tribe, was an administrative law judge for the Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission, and currently is an independent arbitrator.
