Friday, February 13, 2015 is new ADR Section Website

The ADR Section of The Florida Bar has launched its new website at The ADR Section provides a forum for lawyers practicing in alternative dispute resolution, including discussion and exchange of ideas leading to an improvement of individual ADR skills and abilities. Any member in good standing of The Florida Bar interested in the purpose of the section is eligible for membership upon application and payment of $35 in addition to the regular annual Bar dues. The ADR Section keeps Bar members informed and updated regarding legislation, rules and policies in connection with mediation and other ADR processes and the responsibilities they impose on mediator and arbitrator members, as well as provide quality continuing legal education programs. I am pleased to have chaired the initial website effort and thank our Executive Council for their effort in creating content and launching our young section’s website-- as well as, Lani Fraser, Bar Liaison. We invite every member to utilize the resources there which include MEAC opinion links, the ADR News & Notes newsletters, and CLE postings. Visitors may also provide us with suggestions on how we can improve the site and our section. Please use the Contact page to provide us with your thoughts and recommendations. We hope you find it informative and helpful. So now go and check out
