Some Interesting Resources For You

1. For all court annexed mediators (like my friends on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals) check out RSI’s new Court ADR Resource Center

2. Mediation and personal injury cases: where do we go from here? – an interesting look back and forward by Ontario silk, Paul M. Iacono.

3. And new at Mediation World;

> Alternative Dispute Resolution Policy Statements prepared by each of the civil litigating components in the Department of Justice – these documents have been provided to all staff attorneys in the Department of Justice who handle civil litigation, and are being published to make clear the Department’s commitment to greater use of alternative dispute resolution.
