Volunteers Needed for NEW Work Group
The section is forming a Design & Evaluation Work Group.
We need volunteers. Persons desiring to volunteer should submit their name and resume to the Work Group chair, Richard Shannon. The deadline for submission is November 30.
Vision: Design enhancements to the collaborative law practice model to make it
(1) more accessible to a broader demographic, and
(2) a more attractive conflict resolution method in the private free market.
This is an exciting project intended to produce ground-breaking outcomes. Can the private market outperform the traditional courts in producing conflict resolution that is more cost effective, faster, more durable with higher satisfaction of participants?
Qualified Volunteers: Collaboratively trained attorneys (both civil and family), collaboratively trained neutral professionals (both financial and mental health), academic professionals with expertise in conflict resolution and decision-making theory, and mediators. The group will be intentionally limited in size and diverse in areas of expertise.
