Well deserved !!  The text from the  press release is below.

Professor Charles Craver of George Washington University Law School is the 2018 recipient of the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution’s Award for Outstanding Scholarly Work, which honors individuals whose scholarship has contributed significantly to the field of dispute resolution.

Craver is the Freda H. Alverson Professor of Law at George Washington University Law School, where he teaches labor law, international negotiating, legal negotiating, alternative dispute resolution, and employment discrimination law.

Before joining the GW Law faculty in 1986, Professor Craver taught at the University of Illinois, the University of California at Davis, the University of Virginia, and the University of Florida. He also practiced law with Morrison & Foerster in San Francisco and clerked for Judge George MacKinnon of the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit.

Professor Craver’s writing is prolific and influential. His work on negotiation, particularly the modern use of distributive negotiation tactics and possible responses to them, has spawned other research and changed how lawyers approach negotiation. He has written seven ADR texts, including Effective Legal Negotiation and Settlement, first published in 1986 and now in its 8th edition. He has written 30 ADR journal articles and 35 online ADR articles over
his career. Several of those articles include data from negotiation simulation outcomes his students have reached that forms the basis for discussions of the impact (and the lack thereof) of a negotiator’s race and sex on negotiation outcomes. Professor Craver has received awards for outstanding teaching from three law schools and has taught negotiation skills to more than 90,000 lawyers throughout the world.

The Scholarly Work Award will be presented on April 7 at the Legal Educators Colloquium Luncheon at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC, which is a ticketed event. For tickets and more information about the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution Spring
