ABA Women in Dispute Resolution Directory of ADR Practitioners

The American Bar Association’s Women in Dispute Resolution Committee (WIDR), of which Gilda Turitz is Co-Chair, has published its 2017 Member Directory of ADR Practitioners.

Gilda’s Measuring Mediation “Success:” Process Matters As Well As Results is also available on the ABA website as premium content.

We often talk about a mediation being “successful” because the case settled, or conversely that it “failed” because a full settlement was not achieved and at least some parties are continuing to fight.  Is a mediator successful solely by virtue of closure? 

From the clients’ standpoint – both parties and counsel –  the result does not always simply equate to their complete satisfaction as to “success” or “failure” of the mediator and the mediation process.
