Saltman Center’s Beecroft Lecture Series

Renowned scholars to share ADR expertise in the Beecroft Lecture Series

The Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution at the Boyd School of Law was founded on multiple core principles. One of those: to stimulate scholarly research and exchanges on the nature of conflict and explore methods for avoiding and resolving disputes.

Since its beginning, the Saltman Center fulfilled that mission through an annual talk, bringing the nation’s foremost authorities on alternative dispute resolution to present their research and share insights on a variety of topics related to conflict and conflict resolution.

Five years ago, the lecture series was named in honor of the late Chris Beecroft, Jr., a 1971 UNLV graduate who served as commissioner of Alternative Dispute Resolution for the Clark County District Court.

The Beecroft Lecture Series will return with an event February 21 at the Boyd School of Law’s Thomas & Mack Moot Court Facility on the UNLV campus. Michael Moffitt, a professor at the University of Oregon School of Law since 2001 and Philip H. Knight Chair, will present “Truth. Regardless of Reconciliation?”

The public is invited to attend the free lecture, but space is limited so registration is required. Those interested are encouraged to visit the Saltman Center’s event listings for registration information and additional program details.
