Author Biography

Lela Porter Love is a professor of law at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law (NYC), where she leads the Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution. She founded (in 1985) and directs Cardozo’s Mediation Clinic, one of the first in the United States to train law students as mediators. Lela serves as a mediator for a variety of case types, including community, employment, family, probate, human rights, and commercial cases, and trains mediators around the world. As Past Chair of the American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution, she initiated the first International Mediation Leadership Summit at the Peace Palace in The Hague. She has written widely on the topic of dispute resolution, including three law school textbooks and two books about mediation. Her book The Middle Voice, co-authored with Joseph Stulberg, has been translated into two languages.

Glen Parker is a Principal Court Analyst at the Office of Alternative Dispute Resolution Programs in the New York State Unified Court System, where he serves on the team that supports and oversees the numerous mediation centers throughout the state. As his first career path after law school, Glen has served in the field of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in a number of capacities, most recently as the Restorative Justice Manager of the New York Peace Institute (NYPI), and many years ago as a member of the Mediation Working Group for Occupy Wall Street. He is currently on the board of directors for the Association for Conflict Resolution of Greater New York, and a circle keeper for Hidden Water, a nonprofit group that supports healing through restorative practices in family systems affected by child sexual abuse. Glen teaches and trains in restorative justice and conflict resolution and is an adjunct professor at Cardozo School of Law, where he served as a Fellow of the Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution. Glen received his B.A. in philosophy at SUNY Purchase and his J.D. and LL.M. (Dispute Resolution and Advocacy) at Cardozo School of Law.
