Santa Clara – Stanford Conflict Resolution Workshop presents:
Special Master Kenneth Feinberg
More Than Money
Finding Voice and Meaning in the Process of Resolving Mass Disaster Claims
As The New York Times reported, Washington lawyer Kenneth Feinberg’s firm has a near monopoly on “the curious business of devising ways to compensate disaster victims.” Mr. Feinberg has served as Special Master to distribute funds for victims of mass disasters, including
- September 11th Victim Compensation Fund
- BP Deep Horizon Oil Spill
- Roman Catholic Dioceses funds to compensate victims of clergy sexual abuse
- Penn State sexual abuse scandal
- Funds set up for victims of Virginia Tech and Las Vegas mass shootings
He also assisted the Obama Administration in setting compensation for the 25 highestpaid executives at the seven firms that received TARP bail-out funds. Before founding the Washington office of Kaye Scholer, and then his own firm, Mr. Feinberg served as chief of staff to Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

The Santa Clara–Stanford Conflict Resolution Workshop series is a collaboration of the two law schools to bring nationally recognized practitioners and scholars to the Stanford and Santa Clara Law School communities and the general public. Through interactive programs, audiences explore issues of interest in the field of conflict resolution and engage in conversations across differences.
