It is a rare person who through his own thoughts and efforts can truly be said to have changed this country, and the world, for the better. Fewer still do it with humility and grace. Frank E. A. Sander is one such transformative figure, a man who for nearly 40 years has nurtured the field of dispute resolution that today is credited as being one of the most significant shifts in American law. Inspired by his ideas and efforts, the resolution of legal problems is faster, more humane, more effective, and less costly for those in the United States and across the globe.
