JAMS is proud to participate in the ABA’s 2012 Mediation Week. JAMS will host complimentary CLEs and events throughout the week starting Monday, Oct.15. The ABA Mediation Week celebrates the strides made to institutionalize mediation as one of several appropriate dispute resolution processes.

The theme for the 2012 ABA Mediation Week is “Mediation in the Mainstream.” Lawyers and mediators from the court house to the conference room are using alternative means to settle disputes. By using mediation, practitioners can shed light on an important method of resolving personal, commercial, government and community disputes.

JAMS has partnered with local bar associations, law schools and community organizations throughout Mediation Week to host networking receptions and CLEs. Events are scheduled to take place in Atlanta, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orange (CA) and San Francisco.

It’s very important to promote the use and benefits of mediation and help to reinforce its value and effectiveness. This is a great effort from the ABA and JAMS is glad to be a part of it.
