“As the trend toward ADR continues to grow, there is an abundance of ADR case law, legislation and regulation,” said Curtis Brown, vice president of the National Arbitration Forum. “In fact, there is so much that it becomes difficult to track and categorize. So, we plan to bring it all together for people in a format that is easy to digest. We are proud to offer this information to the legal community and all others who are interested and hope they find it useful."
The ADR Law & Policy Update e-newsletter is a complimentary service of the National Arbitration Forum and is delivered every week via e-mail to subscribers. Those interested in subscribing to the e-newsletter are to visit the National Arbitration Forum’s website at http://www.adrforum.com and click on “Subscribe” under the ADR Law & Policy Update heading on the homepage.

The archive of the ADR Law & Policy cases, available on the National Arbitration Forum’s website, will be searchable by category.
