JAMS is committed to advancing diversity within alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and in the legal community at large, and we encourage law firms and other organizations to collaborate with us in our efforts. Recruiting and promoting an inclusive panel of ADR professionals continues to be one of our top priorities. Nearly half of the neutrals who have joined us over the past five years are women and/or diverse.
JAMS clients who wish to monitor their use of diverse mediators and arbitrators can request our Diverse Panelist Utilization Report. This unique tool provides helpful analytics for law firms and corporate legal departments and can support their DEI goals.
The report includes a list of the client’s previous JAMS cases and the neutrals who handled them, with data highlighting the use of JAMS panelists who have self-identified as diverse. Results can be customized by date range, case type and practice area. This tangible information can benefit those focused on tracking DEI metrics and diverse supplier utilization, including:
- Law firm litigators and practice group heads
- Law firm Diversity Committees
- Chief Diversity Officers
- Corporate Counsel
- Supplier Diversity Directors/Managers
