The Mediation Workshop: Moscow Chamber of Commerce with the Cooperation of the United States Embassy & Department of Justice
As guests of the U.S. State Department and Department of Justice, Mr. Baum traveled with Judge Robert Levy of the EDNY to Moscow to participate in a conference of 150 lawyers and judges from across the former Soviet Union, focusing on Commercial Mediation in Russia. Following the conference, Mr. Baum and Judge Levy presented a master class on commercial mediation to 30 participants. Mr. Baum also met with members of the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and one or more members of the Duma to discuss a bill that was before the Duma to introduce mediation to Russia.
After returning to the States, Mr. Baum presented some impressions from this trip at Professor Art Rovine’s International ADR Conference, held annually at Fordham. The following link is to an article associated with those remarks: http://www.nadn.org/articles/BAUM-FordhamPapers-2010.pdf
