    SYM2 Creativity in Court-Connected Mediation: Myth or Reality?

    • Lin Adrian, Copenhagen, Denmark ;
    • Solfrid Mykland, Bergen, Norway
    What does research say about the state of court ADR and the strengths and challenges we face? This session will use Maryland’s ADR Landscape study and research on collaborative law to frame the discussion. From there, Resolution Systems Institute – which has been collecting and analyzing court ADR research since 1995 – will provide a national context and a demonstration of their new online annotated bibliography of court ADR studies. Bringing it together, a court administrator will apply the research in a programmatic setting. Attendees will consider their local situations against the national perspective and explore programmatic implications.
