Florida Bar

I have the distinct privilege and pleasure of serving as the Chair of the ADR Section of the Florida Bar this year, following in the footsteps of those leading ADR practitioners who have served before me. This year our Section is committed to helping serve you, our members, and to enhance the ethical and professional practice of ADR in Florida so that we can better serve the lawyers, the public and the courts in the State of Florida. I want to thank our current newsletter editor Chris Magee and our past newsletter editor A. Michelle Jernigan for creating a newsletter which has helped us to achieve this goal. The Chair of our CLE committee, Kim Torres, has spent countless hours developing meaningful educational programming to fulfill this goal. If you are in need of CLE or Continuing Mediation Education Credits please consider some of the seminars our Section has made available for your purchase.

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.
