Achievements of the American Bar Association (ABA) Dispute Resolution with Ana Sambold, Esq (Vid /Podcast)

 

 

 

I was privileged to engage in a stimulating and thought-provoking conversation with Ana Sambold, Esq, the Chair of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Dispute Resolution for the 2023-2024 Bar Year on Expert Views on ADR (EVA) Vid / Podcast show. Ana Sambold is a California attorney, mediator, and arbitrator and one of the leading figures in the field of dispute resolution in the world. With over a decade of experience, she has served as a neutral in over 1,000 cases across a broad spectrum of civil litigation matters.

She is also a Negotiation Professor at the University of San Diego School of Law and has taught extensively in conflict resolution, negotiation, and ADR globally. She is fully bilingual (English/Spanish) enabling her to effectively mediate and teach in both languages. Ana has also served as the Chair of the San Diego County Bar Association ADR Section, Co-Chair of the California Lawyers Association ADR Committee, and President of the San Diego Law Library Foundation, among other leadership roles.

She wears many hats, so I have left the links to her profile below:

In this series, Ana provided a comprehensive overview of what led to the establishment of the American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution. She then delved into the Section’s role and functions, highlighting how it serves the broader community.

Additionally, Ana touched on the Section’s efforts to promote diversity and inclusivity and the benefits they have yielded. One notable effort is the approval of Resolution 105 in 2018 by the ABA House of Delegates, which aimed to increase diversity in dispute resolution. We also examined some of the Section’s significant achievements within the larger context of the organisation. These achievements include Resolution 500, which strongly urges increased use of Early Dispute Resolution (EDR), while Resolution 703 approved the Uniform Collaborative Law Rules and Uniform Collaborative Law Act (UCLA) and Resolution 501, which underscores the principle of Civility as the cornerstone of democracy and the rule of law.

Ana went on to provide a detailed outline of the new programmes available at the upcoming 2024 Dispute Resolution Spring Conference, which will be held from April 10th to 13th in San Diego, California. Finally, Ana elaborated on the perks of being an American Bar Association (ABA) Dispute Resolution Section member.

The Adoption of Resolution 500-American Bar Association (ABA) House of Delegates

On February 5, 2024, during the ABA Mid-Year Meeting held in Louisville, Kentucky, the ABA House of Delegates unanimously approved Resolution 500, which strongly urges the increased use of Early Dispute Resolution (EDR).

Resolution 500 states: “RESOLVED, that The American Bar Association (ABA) urges lawyers and all interested parties to increase the informed and voluntary use of EDR: party-directed, non-adjudicative approaches to resolving disputes in a time-efficient and cost-effective manner, including, but not limited to, direct negotiation, mediation, and ombuds.”

It is imperative to state that the EDR Committee acknowledges the support of former EDR Committee Co-Chair and ABA Dispute Resolution (DR) Section current Council member Mary Cullen and ABA Ombuds Committee Co-Chair Meg Willoughby, who worked with Ellie Vilendrer and Felicia Harris Hoss, the current co-chairs of EDR, in drafting the Resolution and supporting the Report.

Furthermore, they appreciate the current ABA DR Section Chair Ana Sambold, Past DR Section Chairs and current Delegates David Larson and James Alfini, DR Section Director Jennifer Michel, Past DR Section Chair Myra Selby, and Merril Hirsh for their sound guidance and support.

 Finally, the Committee is thrilled to have worked alongside the Resolution’s Co-Sponsors, the ABA Section of State and Local Government and ABA Senior Lawyers Division, and to have earned the support of the following: ABA Business Law Section, ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law, ABA Young Lawyers Division, and ABA Section of Government and Public Sector Lawyers.
