RSI invites you to participate in a free webcast of an upcoming conference, The Future of Court ADR: Mediation and Beyond, on Friday, September 23. Practitioners, policymakers and academics with backgrounds in family and civil ADR will come together to learn, to discuss potential cross-pollination and collaboration between these traditionally disconnected groups, and to develop recommendations moving forward. We want you to be a part of that discussion.
This small, national symposium was organized by the Association for Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC), the Marquette University Law School, and RSI. While the on-site participation in Milwaukee is limited, everyone who is interested is welcome to join the first day of the conference online at no cost. Sessions will run from 8:30am-5:30pm Central Time. The sessions and times are listed below, and you can view the agenda for information on the nationally recognized presenters. The links to the webcast presentations will be listed on the conference website. Each session will have a moderated webcast, and those attending remotely will have the opportunity to ask questions and make comments via the webcast page. All you need is a standard internet connection and you are all set. You can join any and all of the sessions, so please join the sessions of interest to you and contribute to the conversation(s)!
