the Section’s committee meetings (all of which are open to all members of the
section). The member directory enables section members to find and contact one
another. Archives of the New York Dispute
Resolution Lawyer are available for research and review. Section reports are
published on the website for review by all. Minutes of Executive Committee
meetings are posted so members can find out what activities are planned and what
progress has been made on Section projects. The upcoming addition of Lois Law

There is a new "Dispute Resolution Section Resource Guide" where you can obtain and review accessible lists of Dispute Resolution Resources in the Greater New York Area --- training programs, mediation and arbitration panels, professional organizations, and more. This has been prepared by students of the Cardozo Dispute Resolution Society.
There is also a "Resource Library" to assist members with research, which includes but not limited to, providing the Rules of the ADR Program in New York County; Model Standards of Conduct for Mediators; Proposed Uniform Mediation Act; and more.
