Hinshaw pens post for 'ADR Prof Blog'

April 21, 2011

Art Hinshaw, director of the Lodestar Dispute Resolution Program at the College of Law, published a post titled, “Reflections on Fairly Legal,” on the ADR Prof Blog.

In the post, Hinshaw argues that while the show “Fairly Legal” may make for good TV, it isn’t the best depiction of true mediation.

“Mediation provides a nice setting for the show, but there is little mediation going on,” Hinshaw writes. “Like many other TV shows it manufactures false drama and too much of it.”

Hinshaw’s research and teaching interests lie in the field of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), primarily mediation and negotiation. His research bridges ADR theory and practice, and his teaching responsibilities include the Lodestar Mediation Clinic and negotiation among other ADR courses.
