Alternative Dispute Resolution Section
ATTENTION COURT-DESIGNATED MEDIATORS: Rule 17-205 requires that every court designated mediator must complete four (4) hours of continuing mediation related education each calendar year. If you want to remain on the Montgomery County Circuit Court’s mediation roster you must comply with this Rule. To facilitate compliance, the ADR section will be conducting a four hour CLE during the Winter-Spring CLE cycle. We will have a meeting on Thursday, October 8, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. in the lower level Bar Association Conference Room to plan the CLE. Please come to provide your input on what topics the CLE should cover and to suggest speakers (including yourself).
Upcoming events: CLE with the Elder law, Trust and Estates Sections and Collaboration use of mediation and collaborative law in resolving non-divorce family disputes. We have an excellent planning committee for the CLE, but if you’d like to assist please let me know.
Attention Sports and Arbitration Fans: We are looking for a few good speakers who can lead a discussion regarding the Brady v. NFL decision. Did Commissioner Goodell unfairly sack Tom Brady, or was the Judge offsides when he did not give deference to the arbitrator’s decision? What is the 2nd Circuit likely to do? If you would like to help lead that discussion, please let me know.
If you would like to get more involved in the section, or help with presentations, please contact Bob Baum, section chair, at email@example.com or 301-610-0610.
