Professional Information
  In addition to two decades of teaching, training, consulting and writing in the dispute resolution field, Professor Love serves as a mediator, arbitrator and dispute resolution consultant in a wide range of cases. Since 1985, with Cardozo students, she has mediated hundreds of community, civil court and employment discrimination cases. Independently, she has served as the mediator of family, human rights, civilian and police-officer, school-based and commercial cases. She has arbitrated numerous cases in NYC Civil Court, Small Claims Court and Attorney-Client Fee Disputes. Her mediation of a public policy dispute in Glen Cove, NY, brought widespread publicity to the use of mediation in resolving complex litigation.

Professor Love serves on the Council of the ABA Dispute Resolution Section and the NYS Unified Court System Alternative Dispute Resolution Advisory Committee.

In addition to her work in ADR, she developed and directed the Small Business Clinic at George Washington University's National Law Center. She is a member of the Bar in New York, New Hampshire and the District of Columbia.

Professor Love is the Director of Cardozo's Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution, the sixth ranked alternative dispute resolution program in the country*, and the Cardozo Mediation Clinic.
