Tribal Mediation and Arbitration: Tangled Net or Connected Web?

Gabe Galanda will be speaking at Seattle University Law School on March 18 at a symposium, “ADR’s Role in Resolving Indian Disputes: A Tangled Net or A Connected Web?” The day-long symposium will bring together arbitrators and mediators, tribal attorneys, scholars and judges, and attorneys representing non-Indian commercial clients to discuss the role and proper use of mediation and arbitration to settle Indian Country-based disputes, particularly those involving non-Indian parties.

Gabe will speak at 9:30 AM, regarding “The role of 3rd party alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in resolving disputes between Indian and non-Indian parties.” His comments will be based on his article in the current edition of Dispute Resolution Journal, published by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), titled, “Arbitration in Indian Country: Taking the Long View.”
