The Massachusetts Bar Association is proud to present the 2021 Professor Frank E.A. Sander Award in Dispute Resolution in honor of a true pioneer in the field of dispute resolution (DR). Sander created programs that resulted in measurable, sustained change, going above and beyond the standard of practice to lay the groundwork for today’s modern DR services.
Presented during Conflict Resolution Week in October, this award will acknowledge and honor an individual for his or her prodigious contributions to the field of DR. Past award recipients include David A. Hoffman (2018) and Christine W. Yurgelun (2019).
We are seeking nominations of individuals who:
- Have demonstrated extraordinary leadership, innovation and dedication in the field of DR for more than 10 years
- Have made established contributions to the DR community, and can provide corresponding evidence in a self- or colleague-authored nominee summary
- Are current members of the MBA or willing to join the MBA
