    Expansion of USB 14-1102 to recognize the variety of alternate dispute resolution formats increases the possibility that parties will find a procedure to meet their conflict resolution needs. It therefore strengthens the ADR option provided by the court and encourages lawyers to be thoughtful and creative in meeting clients’ needs.
    As excellent as the potential of the amendment is, it will not reach its promise unless lawyers are aware of the options. Courts should encourage more training in ADR skills and theory as part CLE and otherwise to assure that the potential of this amendment will be fulfilled.
