On May 19, 2017, The Women’s Bar Association of Western Pennsylvania hosted a panel: “ADR Neutrals' Disclosures: Do they meet party expectations and are they effective to ensure against actual and apparent conflicts?” This event was simulcast in Pittsburgh and Erie and combined on the panel federal practitioners, members of the federal bench, approved neutrals and Administrators of the Federal Court’s ADR program.
The program targeted those members of the bar who serve as neutrals and those who practice in the Federal Courts and in the ADR Program as part of the Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE), Arbitration and Mediation processes. The course highlighted parties’ expectations through the ADR process, the extent of detail in the disclosures, guidelines for neutrals in each of the ADR processes and how the various history and relationships of the parties affect disclosures.
