He was joined at the event by the Deans of the Chicagoland area law schools. The panel discussed a variety of topics related to diversity and inclusion in legal education, as well as community building and professionalism within the legal profession.

“Community building begins when those who work together also work to build each other up,” said Judge Haddad. “We all need to think about inclusion as contemporary professionals. Getting a good grasp of other cultures and working together in a professional manner are important first steps in the process of community building.”

ADR Systems, It’s Settled.®

I had another first-class service from a first-class organization. We had a very good arbitration experience with Judge Ward.  He was a terrific arbitrator who patiently listened and made all parties feel important, including my client.  And after the arbitration, Judge Ward wrote a thoughtful ruling. Thank you again – ADR Systems is the best!
