The American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Dispute Resolution has named Fordham Law Professor Jacqueline Nolan-Haley as the 2020 recipient of its Outstanding Scholarly Work Award.
Professor Nolan-Haley is being recognized by the ABA for her landmark work in Northern Ireland:
The 2020 Scholarly work award honors Professor Jacqueline Nolan-Haley, of Fordham University. Professor Nolan-Haley is recognized for her work in Northern Ireland designing key spots to apply mediation as a means of overcoming division following the peace accords. Training key people to begin pilots in those key spots, and a number of these have spread and helped to allow people to work across rifts left by “the troubles.” Several of her publications reflect this work, which continues to have an impact about 20 years after she began it. Her Northern Ireland contributions can guide those in the U.S. seeking to find collaborative processes to help overcome U.S. divisions.
The Scholarly Work award will be presented to Professor Nolan-Haley at the Legal Educators’ Colloquium Luncheon on April 25th, the final day of the 2020 Dispute Resolution Section Spring Conference, held in Orleans, Louisiana.
