Hinshaw presents at USC conference

December 01, 2009

Art Hinshaw, Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the Lodestar Dispute Resolution Program at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, recently presented a paper entitled, "Doing the Right Thing: An Empirical Study of Attorney Negotiation Ethics," at the Fourth Annual Conference on Empirical Legal Studies at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law.

The conference was held Nov. 20-21.

Hinshaw's paper was selected for presentation after a competitive submission process designed to feature original empirical and experimental legal scholarship by leading scholars worldwide from a diverse range of fields. The paper, co-authored by President's Professor Jess K. Alberts from the ASU Hugh Downs School of Human Communication, focuses on whether attorneys follow the dictates of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct when negotiating.

Hinshaw's research and teaching interests lie in the field of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), primarily mediation and negotiation. His research melds ADR theory and practice and includes one of the first published empirical studies of a statewide ADR program in the United States. Hinshaw's teaching responsibilities include the Lodestar Mediation Clinic and Negotiation, among other ADR courses.
