During the late 70s through the early 21st century, the Modern Progressive Era brought into focus a great concern with the manifest lack of justice in law and society. The urgency of the need for justice spawned multiple reform movements. Along with feminism, law and economics, and others, dispute resolution (often referred to as Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) or the “Quiet Revolution”) is recognized as a reform movement which lends itself to progressive persuasion. Professor Thomas Stipanowich is a significant scholar of the Modern Progressive Era. Professor Stipanowich has shaped and internationalized dispute resolution theory and practice for more than four decades. This article reflects on the impact of his scholarship throughout the Quiet Revolution.
