Florida Bar

As we move into the New Year I am excited about the progress made by the ADR Section and the prospects of our continued success in 2018. Our Section membership has grown to 950 ADR practitioners and continues to enjoy an active and strong leadership. I will continue to serve as Chair until June 2018 when I turn over the reins to Chris Magee, Chair-Elect. Serving alongside her on the Executive Council are Kim Torres (Secretary), Michelle Jernigan (Treasurer) and Meah Tell (Immediate Past Chair).

One of the highlights of last year was the Section retreat held at the Hutchinson Shores Resort in November.Read more

Supreme Court

ADR Executive Council Chair Bob Hoyle appears before the Supreme Court for the ADR Section on SC 14-1852.

The Supreme Court Committee on Alternative Dispute Resolution Rules and Policies is asking this Court to establish standards for professional conduct to apply to dispute resolution processes not currently covered by rules, as mediation and arbitration are. This recommendation necessitates some revisions to the rules governing procedure in civil cases and in family law cases. It also necessitates new rules established to specifically apply standards to other kinds of dispute resolution processes not covered by current rules.

Watch it here.
