Prior to law school, Professor Waldman taught film and English at the American International School in Israel. Following law school, Professor Waldman clerked for the Honorable Myron Bright of the Eighth Circuit in Fargo, North Dakota and joined a litigation firm in Washington, D.C., specializing in insurance defense. While practicing in Washington, D.C., Professor Waldman received mediation training and subsequently was awarded a scholarship in 1990 to pursue an LL.M. in this area. While pursuing her LL.M. degree, she was a fellow at the Institute of Law, Psychiatry, and Public Policy in Charlottesville, Virginia.
A member of the TJSL faculty since 1992, Professor Waldman founded and supervises the school’s Mediation Program, which affords students an opportunity to mediate disputes in small claims court. In that capacity, she has secured grant funding from federal and local agencies, foundations and non-profits. She has taught mediation-related courses nationally and internationally and has published over 25 articles and book chapters in the areas of alternative dispute resolution and bioethics. Most recently, she has published Mediation Ethics: Case and Commentaries, an in-depth treatment of the many hard cases that can arise in mediation practice.
