Mediation Week

Over the last few decades the field of alternative dispute resolution has grown tremendously. The recognition that not all cases are well suited for the adversarial process and that there are multiple paths to justice is increasingly shared by attorneys, judges, and the public.

In 2011, the ABA declared the third week of October, “ABA Mediation Week,” in part building on the efforts of many other national, state, and local organizations, including the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) which have traditionally celebrated conflict resolution during the month of October.

The ABA Mediation Week initiative is a celebration of the strides we have made in institutionalizing mediation as one of several appropriate dispute resolution processes. ABA Mediation Week will be held during the week of October 16-22 this year.

If you are interested in sponsoring an activity this year, please complete this registration form which sets forth information about your organization and your contemplated activity.
