Alternative Dispute Resolution

The Alternative Dispute Resolution Section serves to address all aspects of the practice of Alternative Dispute Resolution. This section's goal is to prepare its members for the law profession of the future in which multiple dispute resolution options will become an integral part of every attorney's practice. The section provides information and technical assistance to its members, legislators, government departments and the general public on all aspects of dispute resolution. This section will study existing methods for the prompt and effective resolution of disputes; adapt current legal procedures to accommodate court-annexed and court-directed dispute resolution processes; strive to activate local bar involvement in dispute resolution, and conduct public and professional education programs.

The ADR Section is in the process of creating a list of ADR Section members who are qualified, practicing arbitrators in Mississippi. This list will be maintained on the ADR Section Website and is designed to assist the public and the bar in locating persons qualified to serve as arbitrators. If you are interested in being listed, please fill out the Arbitrator List Application.
