This cutting-edge program was a one-of-a-kind multi-disciplinary collaboration among three scholars whose work touches on informed consent.  Donna Shestowsky (J.D., Ph.D.) from UC Davis has conducted groundbreaking multi-year research that examines how litigants evaluate legal procedures. She was awarded the 2016 Mangano Dispute Resolution Advancement Award for this research. Gil Siegal (LL.B, M.D., S.J.D) from UVA Law has proposed a revolutionary personalized approach to achieve meaningful informed consent in the healthcare industry. He has implemented this approach with over 28,000 patient users of his platform, C-MD. Professor Greenberg’s current work focuses on developing a personalized approach to informed consent in dispute resolution. This work builds on her recent research with Jeff Sovern, Paul Kirgis and Xuiang Liu on consumers’ understanding of arbitration clauses in consumer contracts that was included in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s congressionally mandated study of arbitration.​
