What Is 'Other ADR'?

Major changes are being proposed by The Supreme Court of Florida's Committee on Alternative Dispute Resolution Rules and Policy. This Webinar at noon Thursday, June 18, will review the oral argument that took place earlier this month, when The Florida Bar Alternative Dispute Resolution Section and others delivered their response to "Other ADR" proposals. Presenters will discuss the perceived potential outcome based on this oral argument, as well as explain the new rubric for use of these added settlement techniques.All three presenters -- Lawrence Kolin, A. Michelle Jernigan and guest D. Robert "Bob" Hoyle -- are members of The Florida Bar ADR Section's Executive Council and will bring special insight to the debate over proposed amendments to the Civil Procedure Rules and Family Law Rules, and brand-new Florida Rules for Court-Appointed Alternative Dispute Resolution Neutrals Regarding Alternative Dispute Resolution Processes for which No Other Supreme Court Rules or Standards for Professional Conduct Exist.This Webinar is geared toward litigation practitioners who mediate frequently, as well as mediators who may be eligible for CME.
