ADR Insights: From the Q&A Section of the NYSBA Resolution Roundtable Blog

In August 2015, Resolution Roundtable, the blog site for the Dispute Resolution Section of NYSBA, began posting weekly questions to seek feedback and insights on various alternative dispute resolution (ADR) topics. Traffic to the blog site thereafter greatly increased by ADR users, providers and panelists, with varied responses depending on the topic. Topics included arbitrator selection, disclosures , depositions, ethics, ADR legislation and third-party funding.

Due to the popularity of the site and to promote academic discourse, the Dispute Resolution Section decided to publish the below compilation of all questions and responses, with attribution, from August 3, 2015 to February 21, 2017.
