This post hightlights findings from Donna Shestowsky’s research finding that litigants seem to be unaware of ADR options, and that knowing about some of these options improves their opinions of the court itself. Surprisingly, having a lawyer did not make litigants more aware of ADR options, even when those options were offered by the court system.
