  • Dispute Resolution Center, 5407 North IH35, Suite 410, Austin

Jeff Jury will give our annual Ethics presentation on Friday, December 9th, at the DRC.

NOTE that the meeting will start half an hour earlier than usual.

The Mediation World has evolved rapidly over the past 30 years.  Challenges involving the use of technology, shifts in the market for mediation services, and evolution of legal practice create new ethical questions, will be discussed, with a focus on practical approaches.

Jeff Jury, a founding partner of Burns Anderson Jury & Brenner, L.L.P. in Austin, is a lawyer, mediator, arbitrator and teacher.  He holds the designation “Credentialed Distinguished Mediator” from the Texas Mediator Credentialing Association.  Jeff is the President-Elect of the International Academy of Mediators, has served on the Council of the State Bar of Texas Construction Law and ADR Sections, and is a former President of the Dispute Resolution Center in Austin.  He has published chapters for an American Bar Association-published book dealing with mediation, and sections of a book on construction law published by the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry. 

Jeff teaches ADR, Mediation, and Negotiation at the University of Texas Law School; Arbitration and Dispute Resolution at the Southern Methodist University Graduate Program in Dispute Resolution; and ADR, and Advanced ADR, at Baylor Law School;.  He was honored with the Professionalism Award by the Austin Bar Association and the Texas Center for Legal Ethics and Professionalism in 2009, and received The President’s Award for outstanding service to the International Academy of Mediators in 2012.  He has been named a Texas Super Lawyer in the field of ADR 14 times (every year the designation has existed), and his firm has been named one of the Best Firms in Texas in both Mediation and Arbitration by U.S. News and World Report.

Jeff is a baseball nut who once hit a 700-foot home run to straightaway center field on his kids’ Wii.  This year, an item from his collection of baseball stuff was accepted for donation into the permanent collection by the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.  Jeff will never stop rejoicing in his beloved Cubs’ World Series victory.

The meeting will begin at 11:00 am for networking and the ninety-minute presentation will begin at 11:30. One and a half (1.5) hours of CE credit (ethics) is available to attendees.

This event is free of charge to all interested people, with a light lunch provided. For non-AAM members, a $5 donation for lunch is suggested.

We look forward to seeing you there!
