We are always proud of the hard work of our faculty – in the classroom and in the field of research. We are proud to announce the our very own Dr. Stanley Leasure’s research will be featured in the 2019 issue of MInd’s Eye.
It was recently posted on the Mind’s Eye blog.
Here is a small excerpt from the story:
Dr. Stanley Leasure’s work may give you one more thing to consider when you sign an employment contract or read the employee handbook. What happens when something goes wrong?
“Many big companies want to limit your ability to sue them – of course they do,” Leasure said. “It’s messy and expensive. But more than that, it’s an exhibition that they don’t want.”
Leasure, a business law professor, was a partner in an Arkansas law firm for more than 25 years before joining the Missouri State University faculty. His interest in alternative dispute resolution – like arbitration, negotiation and mediation – began there.
Now he studies cases and rulings to deduce how the courts interpret the Federal Arbitration Act. He publishes articles on the precedents set forth and the discrepancies he sees. His work has influenced several court decisions. It has even been cited by attorneys appearing in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Congratulations, Dr. Leasure.
