ADR

The UM Carey Law ADR Team is a co-curricular student organization for students with a particular skill for and interest in negotiation and mediation. By the time they graduate, students on the team have well-honed ADR skills, which are a useful asset in any practice area. The ADR Team sends students to several negotiation and mediation competitions each year. Team members are also enrolled in a for-credit seminar about ADR theory and practice. 

First-year Day Division students and second-year Evening Division students are welcome to try out for the ADR Team during our annual Intra-School Negotiation Competition. The competition is held in the spring semester. Faculty, alumni, and local professionals serve as judges, and then the ADR Executive Board invites the best competitors to join the team.  

The ADR team is largely student-run, but we are greatly assisted by our faculty advisor, Toby Guerin, and our adjunct professors, Barry Gogel and Jay Knight, as well as the rest of our alumni coaches. Mr. Gogel and Mr. Knight teach the ADR Team Seminar, which focuses on negotiation in the fall and mediation in the spring. Mr. Gogel was recently voted Maryland Carey Law’s 2016-2017 Adjunct Professor of the Year!
