Here's the note from the ABA Section Chair:
From Nancy Welsh, Chair of the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution:
Recently, the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution dedicated its quarterly Dispute Resolution Magazine to the opportunities and challenges facing ombuds. The work of ombuds is very much a part of the Section. One of our committees is devoted to ombuds and is making lawyers, law students and the ABA more aware of the ombuds profession. The Section also has published one of the leading books on ombuds, Chuck Howard's The Organizational Ombudsman: Origins, Roles and Operations--A Legal Guide.
All members of the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution receive complimentary copies of the Dispute Resolution Magazine. If you are not a member but are interested accessing the articles in our recent issue focusing on the ombuds profession, please paste “Ambar.org/OmbudsMag” into your browser or click on this link: http://www.americanbar.org/groups/dispute_resolution/publications/dr_mag.html. You will receive immediate access to the Magazine.
We hope you will take the Dispute Resolution Section up on this offer. We look forward to your comments, and we welcome all ombuds who are interested in joining the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution.
