President’s Column
By Jay M. Patterson
Practicing What We Preach

One of the concepts we mediators often discuss with our clients is the value of controlling ones own future by getting actively involved in creating a solution to an obstacle. Of course, the flip side of the freedom to craft solutions that serve ones interests is the required willingness to take personal responsibility to actively work on the solution rather than relying on others to solve it for them. I believe, and I think most mediators believe, in the empowerment that comes from direct and active involvement. I further believe the profession of mediation itself could get better at abiding by that very same principle.

As we approach the end of the terms of most of the OMA board, it will again become necessary for mediators to help take control of the profession’s collective future by showing a willingness to take a leadership role in OMA as it continues to work to advance the field of mediation throughout Ohio. The terms of President, Vice President and Secretary will end on April 30, 2008. In addition, the terms of the appointed board members end annually.

I beseech you to at least have a conversation with me or another board member to merely discuss the possibility of becoming a member of the OMA board and thereby playing a direct role in advancing our collective future as a profession. You are not obligating yourself to become a leader of OMA by simply considering the option in a discussion with a board member. If you have the discussion, though, you might just find the prospect to be more interesting than at first you might have thought. Speaking for myself, I have found the work of OMA to be truly rewarding.

If you too believe better outcomes can be produced by direct involvement in the challenge of the underutilization of mediation in our society, I hope you will follow the same value we communicate to our clients by getting involved yourself. Take control of your profession’s future; don’t wait for someone else to do it for you. We need to begin planning for the election and appointments now, so I’m looking forward to hearing from you very soon.

We are doing some hiring this year, at UNLV, and one of the possibilities is someone with an interest and expertise in ADR.  We are hoping to strengthen our already strong (we think) Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution.  One possibility could be someone with an interest in running an ADR clinic, which we don’t currently have.  Conceivably we could also hire a non-clinician, particularly if it were someone with empirical strengths or interests in the business side of dispute resolution.  For information on the Saltman Center see our website at:: The official ad is below.  Please feel free to distribute or post both this e-mail and the ad.

Greetings. This is my regular fall email asking you to help “spread the word” about the LL.M. Program in Dispute Resolution at the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU) School of Law.  Our school is recognized internationally as a leader in dispute resolution with one of the largest groups of dispute resolution experts of any law school. Below is information about our innovative program designed for practitioners and scholars.  I would appreciate your passing this along to anyone you think might be interested.  We are strongly committed to diversity and we encourage applications from minorities, women, and others contributing to the diversity of our program. Now starting its ninth year, the LL.M. program has 22 students from diverse backgrounds.  Our program features small classes, generally limited to students with law degrees.  As a result, students and faculty develop a close feeling of community.  Over the years, students have come from 24 countries outside the U.S.  For biographies of our current students, see  Students may enroll full-time or part-time. We normally schedule required courses one day a week so that part-time students can work the other four days. This has enabled students to attend from out of state. LL.M. students can get dual degrees (M.A. and Ph.D.) from Missouri’s famous Journalism School.  For information about these programs, please contact Prof. Richard Reuben at reubenr@missouri.eduor (573) 884-5204.  Many LL.M. students take courses at the Harry S Truman School of Public Affairs, where they can earn a Certificate in Public Affairs in conjunction with the LL.M. degree. LL.M. graduates work across the U.S. and abroad in a variety of positions.  For example, Jim Reeves started a firm in St. Louis called Conflict Management Systems with a focus on mediation, facilitation, and organizational conflict management.  Suzanne Curran Carney is the program development director at Central Mediation Center in Kearney, Nebraska.  Art Hinshaw is the director of the Lodestar Dispute Resolution Program at Arizona State University College of Law. Catherine (Katie) Moore has expanded the mediation services in her solo practice in southwestern Missouri. Applicants submitting complete files by January 1 receive decisions in February.  Applicants submitting completed files by March 1 receive decisions in April.  Applications received after March 1 are reviewed on a rolling basis.   Financial aid is available, including the Rankin M. Gibson LL.M. Scholarship and LL.M. fellowships.  See  Full information is on the web at  If you or others have questions, feel free to contact me at (573) 882-3914,, or Karen Neylon, the program coordinator, at (573) 882-2020, While I’m at it, here’s a reminder about the symposium that our Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution is sponsoring on Oct. 12 entitled, “Innovative Models of Lawyering: Collaborative Law and Other Processes.”  David Hoffman, the founding partner of the Boston Law Collaborative, LLC, and a former chair of the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution, will give the keynote presentation, entitled, “Practicing Law as Form of Dispute Resolution:  Towards a Unified Field Theory of ADR.”  The symposium will be published next year in our Journal of Dispute Resolution and it should be really good.   For more details, see   I hope you all have a good year.
