Joint ADR Committee
Share |

The Joint Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee, comprising members of The Virginia Bar Association and Virginia State Bar in equal measure, seeks to further alternative dispute resolution in its many forms as it develops in Virginia. While called a committee, it is, in essence, a substantive law section.


Special Committee

At the request of Chief Justice Donald W. Lemons of the Supreme Court of Virginia, the Joint ADR Committee Council has appointed a Special Committee to Study Appellate Mediation in Virginia. The inaugural meeting was held Nov. 3, 2017, and the Special Committee's study has continued with additional meetings since then.
