The Global Pound Conference (GPC) Series is a not-for-profit global project, initiated by the International Mediation Institute that will convene all stakeholders in dispute resolution - commercial parties, lawyers, academics, judges, arbitrators, mediators, policy makers, and others - at conferences around the world. These conferences will provoke discussion on existing tools and techniques, stimulate new ideas and generate actionable data on what corporate and individual dispute resolution users actually need and want, both locally and globally.
The Mid-Atlantic Session of the GPC will take place in Baltimore on June 8, 2017. This session is being organized and hosted by the Maryland Judiciary's Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO) and the Center for Dispute Resolution at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law (C-DRUM), in collaboration with stakeholders from around the region. The session will take place at the Maryland Carey Law School, to allow participants from Maryland, Washington D.C., Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Virginia to conveniently attend.
