MU arbitration expert wins award

An MU law professor and senior fellow of the School of Law’s nationally recognized dispute resolution center won last month the Best Short Article Award from the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution.

Two years ago, S.I. Strong was awarded Best Professional Article from the institute.

Strong’s winning article this year compared collective shareholder arbitration in Germany with class arbitration in the United States. The article was published in ASA Bulletin, the journal of the Swiss Arbitration Association.

At the New York ceremony, Strong said: “The evening’s events were truly a collection of the best and brightest minds in the field of dispute resolution, and the diversity of the recipients and the projects honored shows how important dispute resolution is not only to business, but also to individuals on the street.”

This spring, Strong travels to the Netherlands for five-month fellowships at the Hague Institute for the Internationalization of Law and the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in Humanities and Social Sciences.
