Martin Scheinman“If you look at the most important and successful neutrals in labor and employment in the U.S. today, a great number of them have been educated at Cornell ILR. I want more students to think about dispute resolution as a career -- to help educate the next generation of neutrals -- and to show that collective bargaining, arbitration and dispute resolution in a complex global world still matter.”
