The MSBA's Public Utilities Law Section Presents



OAH Mediation: Innovative Routes to "Yes"

It is often said that Alternative Dispute Resolution advances four key goals. ADR reduces dependence upon lawyers and the legal system to resolve disputes; empowers people to craft their own solutions to problems; strengthens local communities; and provides relief to non-parties. What is less well-known is that for more than three decades, the Office of Administrative Hearings has been meeting each of these goals through its ADR programs. OAH is also building on its successes with a set of new and very innovative programs to resolve disputes. For these reasons, the MSBA Public Utility Law Section is hosting a luncheon to explore what too many lawyers do not know – that mediation at OAH is very affordable, adaptable to new situations and it really works! Assistant Chief Administrative Law Judge Eric L. Lipman will describe how OAH resolves complex disputes without litigation and detail the mediation programs that the agency is building for the future. Even for busy lawyers, this will be a not-to-miss presentation.

Teleconferencing or webcasting is not available.

Box lunches will be provided for registrations received by Thursday, February 14.


Assistant Chief Administrative Law Judge Eric L. Lipman, Minnesota Office of Administrative Hearings
