Collaborative Law Section 

    Dispute resolution need not be a one-size-fits-all proposition. Options include but are not limited to: arbitration, early neutral evaluation (ENE), negotiation, mediation, settlement conference, cooperative law and Collaborative law. Every case is as unique as the individuals involved in the dispute. The best option for resolving a dispute depends on various factors such as the facts of the case, the dynamics of the relationship between the parties, each party’s unique character traits, ability to pay and other considerations (privacy, parties’ need to interact in the future, etc.). Some cases can be best resolved by litigation; others can be best resolved by mediation while some cases can be best resolved by Collaborative law, etc. At the minimum, every potential client deserves to know about various dispute resolution options in order to make an informed decision about the best way to proceed. This is why we invite all BAMC members who practice Civil law (i.e. any area of law other than criminal law) to get involved in this relatively new, but quickly growing practice area. 
     Our October meeting featuring, “Collaborative Law: A Viable Dispute Option for Resolving Civil Disputes”, will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 and will feature two speakers in our Civil Collaborative Community. All members of BAMC who practice other than criminal law are welcome and need not be collaboratively trained or members of the Collaborative Law Section to attend. We look forward to seeing you then.
