The fields of engineering, equity and dispute resolution may not seem to be a natural combination. However, Dr. Rahhal saw the importance of being able to connect these fields so she pursued her Master of Law in Dispute Resolution in 2020. She is qualified to mediate and/or arbitrate cases within your organization or externally.
Dr. Rahhal can provide an unbiased resolution process on topics related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and Higher Education.
Arbitration is a common method referred to and in most terms and conditions we sign today. It involves an unbiased arbitrator that can hear both sides out-of-court, listen to both parties, review the presented evidence, and come to a legal binding agreement that both parties accept. Arbitration is typically faster and less expensive than going to court.
Mediation is a non-binding procedure where a neutral third party listens to both parties, the relevant facts, and assists in negotiating between two parties to avoid litigation. This is considered a faster method than arbitration or litigation.
Dr. Rahhal is skilled in mediation and arbitration, specifically as it relates to STEM fields, disputes in higher education, employee disputes related to gender and race inequities, and patent/technology disputes.
