Mediation Settlement Day Kick-Off 2018 

ADR + Access to Justice 

TuesdayOctober 9, 2018


Thurgood Marshall U.S. Courthouse, 40 Foley Square

With this year’s theme we highlight the ways in which ADR processes are effective in achieving substantive and procedural justice. Processes like mediation are widely recognized for empowering parties to secure a result that is self-determined and often unobtainable in court. From federal appellate mediation to restorative justice in criminal court cases – ADR and A2J intersect in numerous ways. 

We are proud to have as our Honorary Chair Hon. Edwina G. Mendelson, Deputy Chief Administrative Judge for Justice Initiatives, New York State Unified Court System.

Light refreshments will be served. 

This year, we present the Frontline Champion Award to Daniel Weitz, Esq. This award recognizes individuals who have made a meaningful impact on the field of mediation or helped others through their commitment to the effective practice of mediation.  

Join fellow professionals in breakout sessions with focused discussion on these topics:

Raise the Age & Access to Justice with Judge Edwina Mendelson

A2J and Appellate Mediation with Kathleen Scanlon & Dean Leslie 

High Volume Courts and A2J Judge Anthony Cannataro & Antoinette Delruelle 

How ADR Organizations are thinking about Access to Justice Ken Adrichick (FINRA) and Jeff Zaino (AAA)

These sessions will explore how ADR is being used to support Access to Justice – such as the many free and low-cost ADR services that are available to litigants in various court settings – as well as brainstorm how the breadth of ADR services and programs can expand to further reach those who might benefit. We will further consider how these A2J questions can impact our professional practice and align with our career building.

This event is free and open to the public – registration is required and space is limited. Please register by October 4th.
