// Oct 17, 2016
On October 14, 2016, C&J dispute resolution attorney Nathan D. Alder presented "The Future of ADR in Utah" at the annual Utah State Bar Dispute Resolution Section ADR Academy. During his 60-minute presentation, Nate encouraged members of the Dispute Resolution Section to create the future landscape for arbitration, mediation, special master work and early neutral evaluations. Nate's presentation focused primarily on impediments to growth in the field, what Utah lacks regarding widespread adoption of ADR, and how leaders and stakeholders can open up practices and programs to greater adoption, including online dispute resolution (which is closer than you might think). Nate also addressed important topics like training programs in Utah, higher education, certifications and a more sophisticated provider and consumer landscape, including awareness and programmatic negotiation opportunities.
