The report reflects about 20 hours of interviews, including the interviews of several QU professors, ADR professionals, law firm attorneys, government attorneys, and a judge sitting on the Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Center (QICDRC). At this point in the process, I have interviewed people who live and work in Qatar, but I have also interviewed two people living in Dubai.

I gave that long lecture on Sunday to my female class. I had low energy (the class meets from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.) and the room was hot. At the end of it, I told the students that it was the "most boring lecture I had ever given," and I would never give it again.

Next week, they interview the "client," who is played by my friend and colleague, Jessica. Later still, they will interview a "confused consumer" played by my driver, Ashif. I love how these role-players interpret the roles.

The Conti case helps students begin to understand rule synthesis in a common law tradition. They struggle with the idea of cases as precedent. But, I am getting better at offering them support by providing more scaffolding for their work. They respond better if they know exactly what I want. I guess all students do.
