KCBA and WSBA Alternative Dispute Resolution Sections Special Event

The KCBA Alternative Dispute Resolution Section presents a special event, co-sponsored by the WSBA ADR Section:
Escalating Cost of Civil Litigation Task Force:  
Recommendations Regarding Alternative Dispute Resolution

In April 2011 the Washington State Bar Association Board of Governors chartered a Task Force on the Escalating Costs of Civil Litigation to:  1) Assess the current cost of civil litigation in Washington State Courts and make recommendations on controlling those costs; and 2) survey neighboring and similarly situated states to compare the cost of litigation in Washington. 

In celebration of ABA Mediation Week (Oct. 11-17), join us for a panel discussion with members of the ECCL Task Force to learn about their upcoming report and the recommendations regarding the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution to reduce the escalating cost of litigation.

•         Motivation behind the task force
•         How the task force came up with its recommendations
•         If adopted, how the recommendations will be implemented
