Traditional mediation and arbitration are not the only tools available through JAMS. In some situations other approaches are more appropriate, effective and/or economical.

ADR and Diversity in the Life Sciences Sector

The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent rush to develop life-saving vaccines have posed enormous challenges for practitioners in all areas of the life sciences and health care industries, including those whose area of focus pertains to resolving disputes in these sectors. Meeting these and other emerging challenges in the life sciences field, and resolving the disputes that will inevitably arise as a result of them, will require creative solutions.

Designing Dispute Resolution for Educational Institutions: Listening Is Key

You are an associate professor at an esteemed college, which you always thought of as your dream job. Of late, however, you feel as though you are spending less time doing what you came here to do. Instead, you can barely keep your head above water as the administration continually adds new courses and responsibilities to your post. As a result, you are feeling demoralized and stretched thin. You know your colleagues are feeling the same way. When you raise the issue at faculty meetings with the administration, your concerns are swept under the rug. Clearly, the institution is more concerned with the budget than the well-being of its most important resource—faculty members.
