Professor Shestowsky Presents Research at ABA Conference

Professor Donna Shestowsky delivered two presentations at the annual spring conference for the American Bar Association’s Section on Dispute Resolution. This year’s conference was held in San Francisco. For one panel, which was part of the Court ADR Preconference, she presented her latest empirical research on how well litigants can identify the court-connected ADR procedures for which they were eligible.  Her second presentation was on the topic of promoting informed consent on the part of litigants when it comes to making decisions about procedures for their cases. For more information, please see the UC Davis press release on her work.

Donna Shestowsky, who has both a law degree and a PhD in Psychology, is a Professor of Law and Martin Luther King, Jr. Research Scholar at UC Davis School of Law, where she teaches Criminal Law, Negotiation Strategy, Alternative Dispute Resolution, and a seminar in Legal Psychology.  She was the 2007 recipient of the Law School's Distinguished Teaching Award.
