Have you ever wondered whether court mediation really saves time and money?
If so, we are thrilled to share our new Mediation Efficacy Studies resource with you! Our brilliant Director of Research Jennifer Shack brought her extensive experience studying court ADR to this project — curating, categorizing and summarizing reliable research about whether court mediation really saves time and money, and whether participants experience procedural justice.
This new part of our website is built on Jen’s popular Bibliographic Summary of Cost, Pace, and Satisfaction Studies of Court-Related Mediation Programs and is the most comprehensive collection of resources on the effectiveness of court mediation available anywhere.
The studies cover a range of case types including civil, family, small claims, victim-offender, workers’ compensation, bankruptcy and appellate cases. Plus, with the new online format, the information is searchable by various characteristics, such as case type and whether the study used comparison groups.
We are thrilled to share this new resource with you! Please let us know what you think, and as always we appreciate your support of RSI.
