Arbitration And Mediation 2021: Best Practices Working Through And Beyond
Made up of panels of leading providers, clients, arbitrators mediators, and academics in the ADR field, the program will conduct an in-the-weeds appraisal of our COVID experiences and how we can use them to improve our delivery of ADR from the perspectives of all interested parties.
The program will include a report by John Kiernan, Chair of the Chief’s Judge’s presumption mediation initiative and Hon. Lawrence K. Marks, Chief Administrative Judge, New York Court System, as to what we can expect in the coming years by way of increases of cases to be mediated through the court system across the various substantive and geographical areas, including upstate.
The keynote address will be given by Fordham Dean Emeritus John Feerick, one of the founders and foremost leaders of New York’s ADR world for many decades and national leaders in initiating and developing ADR into law school curriculums.
This program will also take a look at the ethics and inclusion issues that have arisen during COVID and how such issues will impact arbitration and mediation practice in the coming years, hopefully for the benefit of parties and all who serve them.
The program will close with a panel on ADR practice development in the time of COVID, examining what has worked during this period and what is likely to work going forward in the post-COVID world as we all strive to solidify our practices and the ADR services offered.
