Speziale Alternative Dispute Resolution Symposium

Last month, Quinnipiac University School of Law hosted the Eighth John A. Speziale Alternative Dispute Resolution Symposium. This year the symposium covered “ADR in Hard Times: Can Alternative Dispute Resolution Maintain Access to Justice When Resources Are Limited?” I was honored to ask to serve as a Resource Participant in the afternoon breakout session on Family, Elder, and Probate Law.

Our group had a lively discussion about the ways that ADR — mostly mediation — can help with appropriate resolutions for various types of conflicts in these areas.  In particular, we talked about how the court system (specifically the many subparts that can become enmeshed in these conflicts) can make better use of ADR, leading to both better processes and better results.
