Professor Lela Love

Professor Lela Porter Love, director of the Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution and the Cardozo Mediation Clinic, has been named a Scholar-in-Residence, with a two-year appointment at the International Academy of Mediators (IAM) for 2017-19. 

IAM is an invitation-only society of professional mediators. Its mission is to define standards and qualifications for the professional mediator of commercial disputes and to promote the mediation process as the preferred means of resolving disputes.

Since 1985, Professor Love has mediated hundreds of community, civil court and employment discrimination cases. Independently, she has served as the mediator of family, human rights, civilian and police-officer, school-based and commercial cases. Her mediation of a public policy dispute in Glen Cove, NY, brought widespread publicity to the use of mediation in resolving complex litigation.
 
Professor Love serves on the Council of the ABA Dispute Resolution Section and the NYS Unified Court System Alternative Dispute Resolution Advisory Committee.
 
She released her new book, Stories Mediators Tell, World Edition in March 2017.
