You are reminded about the TBA Dispute Resolution Section's Annual Seminar, "Understanding Conflict: Neuroscience and Psychological Concepts and Their Practical Applications in Dispute Resolution," to be held April 12 at the TBA headquarters.  Participants include Chris Guthrie, Dean, Vanderbilt Law School; Dr. David McMillan, Ph. D., Dr. Gary Duncan, M. D., and Dr. Murphy Thomas, Ph.
