Margaret Shaw-obituary-so very sad

SHAW — Margaret.

I am  sharing the very sad news that Margaret L. Shaw, passed away.  She will always be remembered as one of the leaders of the mediation field.  Margaret was a trailblazer who championed mediation first at Children’s Aid Society, then went on to start ADR Associates which she combined with JAMS in 2004. A former civil litigator, Margaret authored many articles on a variety of aspects of the ADR field and taught at NYU Law School.  She will be sorely missed.
