This Article provides a transcript of Professor Stipanowich’s remarks during the Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal’s symposium, American Justice at a Crossroads. In these remarks, Professor Stipanowich discusses issues raised in the Final Report of the American College of Trial Lawyers and the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System, including those related to discovery and court rules. He also comments on the new Protocols for Expeditious, Cost-Effective Commercial Arbitration: Key Action Steps for Business Users, Counsel, Arbitrators, and Arbitration Provider Institutions. Finally, he expresses his hope that the symposium serves as a landmark occasion for those interested in developing more effective and appropriate approaches to resolving conflict.
