Spring 2023 Student Spotlight: Valerie Gutmann ’23 & Austin Riddick ’23

Each semester we highlight students who spend a good portion of their time at Harvard Law School contributing to the dispute resolution program—through student groups, our courses, and the Dispute Systems Design Clinic. First up this spring, we’re excited to feature a joint interview with two students:  Valerie Gutmann ’23 and Austin Riddick ’23.

Valerie and Austin agreed to interview each other about their time at Harvard Law School—how they became interested in dispute resolution, why they think the field is vital to our culture and the legal system today, their passion for helping those in conflict find agency and ownership in problem-solving, the specific ways they found to follow their passions in the work, and how they found community in the field.
