Making Your Job Easier with ADR

Join the chair of the Trial Court’s Standing Committee on Dispute Resolution, the new chair of the Superior Court ADR Committee, trial judges and litigators for an open bench/bar discussion about how ADR techniques -- particularly mediation -- can help attorneys increase income and save clients money. In addition, panelists will provide alternatives for dispute resolution in a time of crowded dockets and backed-up/closed trial sessions. Discussion topics include:

  • What are the ADR options available for my pending case and how can I access mediation?
  • How attorneys can build ADR into their courthouse practices;
  • Views about the mediation experience of the Plaintiffs’ and Defendants’ Bar;
  • Why some trial judges favor mediation, and why others do not; and
  • How trial judges can promote ADR, particularly medication, for every pending case.
