The theme for this year’s ABA Mediation Week is
Mediation, Civil Discourse, and ABA 2011 Resolution 108. Resolution 108 affirms
the principle of civility as a foundation of democracy and the rule of
law.  It calls for action to make meaningful steps to
enhance the constructive role of lawyers in promoting a more civil public
discourse. Stephen Shields, as a keynote speaker, will emphasize the importance
of ethics in the mediation process. Our other events will focus on healthy dispute
resolution in tenant/landlord relationships. These events will not only serve
as an educational opportunity for the general public regarding how a mediation
process may function, but also for experienced mediators looking to expand upon
their previous training.

Western Cape, South AfricaCape Town10/17/18Conflict Dynamics One of our goals in Conflict Dynamics is to
advocate for appropriate dispute resolution in South Africa. Mediation Week
presents an ideal opportunity to do this. We are hosting a roundtable
discussion between mediator provider and training organisations, as well as mediators,
based in the Western Cape to hear about mediation initiatives in the province
and discuss how we can grow the mediation field for the benefit of all.


   https://www.conflictdynamics.co.za/CoursesAndWorkshops/Course/50
Bowmans Building 22 Bree Street , Cape Town, Western Cape Town, South Africa, 8000The mediation field can feel quite competitive,
with providers and mediators vying for a limited number of mediations. We aim,
through our roundtable discussion, to undertake a serious exchange of views in
which we focus on the issues rather than the individuals, and thoughtfully
listen to what others say. We believe that there are fewer sources of
competition and more points of common interest between mediator providers,
training organisations and mediators then we sometimes think there are. We will
aim for an exchange of views which embodies the ideals behind the 'mediation
and civil discourse' 2018 Mediation Week theme.

MissouriColumbia   10/17/18 Alternative Dispute Resolution Organization In honor of National Mediation Week, we held an
intra-school online dispute resolution (ODR) tournament. Everyone in the law
school was invited to participate, regardless of prior experience. Teams were
comprised of one or two MU students who then competed against another Mizzou
Law team. The negotiation was hosted online using Trokt and, therefore, students
could participate at the law school or remotely. Winners were then decided in
conjunction with Alternative Dispute Resolution Organization executive board
and faculty at the Center for Dispute Resolution.The top 3 teams were then
awarded $150 sponsorship to the national ODR bowl (which is also hosted
online).

   ADRO strives to create
opportunities for our members to participate in ADR. This can be done by
coordinating with the Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution, continuing to
network with leaders in the industry, looking to the community for potential
needs we can fulfill, and working with Trokt employees to facilitate the online
dispute resolution competition. The recent ODR bowl is just one of the many
ways we have advanced the vision of ABA Mediation Week. Students who had not
formerly engaged in ADR have now been exposed to ADR processes, and those with
more experience have continued to build skills in the field.
