CUNY Dispute Resolution Center at John Jay College 

Association for Conflict Resolution of Greater NY

NYC DR Monthly Roundtable Breakfast


Panelists will discuss their recent survey of ADR practitioners' and lay people’s understanding of the fundamental characteristics of dispute resolution processes. The project showed that lay people had significant gaps in their knowledge about what mediation and arbitration are; how they differ from one another; what actually happens in mediation and arbitration; and what kinds of outcomes each process is designed to provide.  These knowledge deficiencies should trigger ethical obligations on conflict and dispute resolvers and lawyers, to ensure that clients can make knowledgeable choices of resolution mechanisms, give informed consent, and find greater engagement and success within whatever process the laymen chooses.  The panel will also discuss information opportunities suggested by the survey’s results that professionals can use to fully advise their clients, prospective clients, and the public.
