The ADR Section of the Colorado Bar Association provides a forum for educating the legal community, the judiciary and the general public on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) including mediation, settlement conference, arbitration, med-arb, and conflict resolution. The ADR process assists those in dispute to resolve conflict through the use of a neutral third party.  

The Section hosts speakers, participates in ADR events and provides resources for both those needing ADR services and those providing these services such as mediators and arbitrators. To find the CBA list of mediators and arbitrators, click on the Find-A-Lawyer links below.

The Section also works with CLE to offer a 40-hour mediation course for mediator training, and sponsors the annual ADR Conference, typically held each October. The activities of the Section are completed through the work of committees, which include Programs/Projects, Articles, Legislation and Website. The committees provide support to the legal community, businesses, government, courts, and the general public in the understanding and use of all types of ADR in manner which aids in the resolution of cases both prior to and during any court or administrative process, as well as assists with resolution of other general disputes.
