Alternative Dispute Resolution Society (ADR Society) helps law students explore the practice of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). ADR refers to a variety of processes such as arbitration and mediation and techniques such as negotiation designed to resolve legal disputes just short of litigation.
ADR principles are useful in any type of legal practice, considering that over ninety-five percent of cases are settled outside of court. Effective client representation increasingly calls for lawyers with ADR skills who can, for example, facilitate settlement negotiations or advise clients in ADR proceedings.
ADR Society aims to further students' understanding of ADR by hosting guest speakers, networking events, and opportunities to participate in negotiation and ADR competitions.
