Alternate Dispute Resolution Committee
The Alternate Dispute Resolution Committee meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the ACBA Headquarters, in conference room A.
This Committee shall focus on alternate means and methodology of resolving conflicts and disputes, in addition to traditional litigation within the judicial system. Non-judicial methods such as mediation, conciliation, collaborative law, fact-finding, mini-trials, and arbitration are considered viable and efficient alternate methods of dispute resolution. Its goals are to sponsor educational programs for members of the bar and for the public, to familiarize both of these groups with the available options, to be a clearinghouse of ADR activities and study application of ADR methods locally, and to act as a networking resource.
