Leslie Ann Berkoff, Meghan A Adams, Lita Masini Popke, and Mac Richard McCoy

Federal and state courts often appoint “neutrals” to assist with resolving and adjudicating disputes. These neutrals include mediators, arbitrators, special masters, and others. In this program, you will learn from experienced judges, lawyers, clients, and neutrals how courts are using neutrals to resolve disputes efficiently. The panel will address the use of neutrals, their appointment, and the roles they play, as well as the benefits of using court-appointed neutrals from the client’s perspective.
