Article excerpt

Frank Scardilli, who stepped down from the Institute of General Semantics Board of Trustees in December, has been made an honorary IGS trustee. He has had a more than sixty-year interest in general semantics and was not only active on the IGS board; he also played a prominent role on the board of the New York Society for General Semantics. In 2009, Scardilli received the J. Talbot Winchell Award, in recognition of his many years of indispensable contributions, accomplishment, and time-binding efforts in service to the Institute of General Semantics.

Scardilli had a lengthy and distinguished career in the field law serving as a legal practitioner, law professor, and Chief Mediator of the U.S. Court of Appeals where he negotiated/mediated thousands of cases of all types some involving stakes as high as billions of dollars.

He also served as adjunct professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law for fifteen years where he taught "Negotiation and Conflict Resolution"--a course consistently ranked by students among the best in the school.

Scardilli was honored by the establishment of a Chair in his name at Cardozo. He trained judges across the nation in negotiation and mediation, lectured at the United Nations, to Bar associations, and over a dozen colleges and universities.
