Promoting ADR on the Go

Mary Novak, January 15th, 2013

As the Resource Center Director at RSI, I receive questions about Court ADR and do my best to help people through our extensive database. When the questions have general interest, I like to completely rewrite them and share them with our readers.

Dear Mary,

I travel to courts around the world promoting court-related mediation programs. I can communicate my belief in the power of ADR, but I’d like to back up my passion with some cold, hard facts about actual results from ADR programs across the country.

Sincerely,
World Traveler 

Dear Traveler,

To condense weighty statistics about court ADR programs nationwide, RSI has created two documents that should meet your needs. First is our Bibliographic Summary, which condenses the key findings of more than 60 empirical studies of court mediation. The other is our state-by-state guide to foreclosure dispute models, which contains empirical data for dozens of foreclosure programs.

Many variables can demonstrate the value of court ADR. To get you started, here are a few diverse examples from the Bibliographic Summary:

Good luck with your travels. Please let me know if there is any other information that may be helpful to you.

Best Wishes from the Resource Center

    I think it is very helpful, and interesting, for we of the “general public” who do not “follow the studies” in the field to get these one line summary of study results. Could you do more of this?
