Section Alternative Dispute Resolution


The ADR Section (Alternative Dispute Resolution) works to further the knowledge of its members by developing and implementing programs and training in alternative dispute resolution, and to offer Continuing Legal Education (CLE). ADR Section members are lawyers and nonlawyers who serve as mediators, arbitrators, and neutral case evaluators. Attorneys and other professionals who advocate for their clients in ADR proceedings are welcome to join the section.

Patrons are slowly returning to the Marin County Law Library after our reopening to the public in May 2021. At present, we require all patrons to wear masks but have mostly returned to normal operations. Two of the Library's major public programs continue on Zoom, rather than in person: Lawyers in the Library and First Thursdays at the Marin County Law Library.

Owning a young bi-coastal law practice has meant both growing pains and delights. COVID-19 added an entirely unexpected twist.

The most popular question during interviews is, “Are we expected to be in the office every day?”

There you are, scrolling through an email thread or the news feed of your favorite social media site, when what do you see? A comment by a colleague or friend that’s utterly outlandish! You can hardly believe it—how could they believe that? You limber up your fingers and thumbs and get ready to tell them how wrong they are…or you decide it’s not worth it and either do your best to ignore them or unfriend them immediately and never have contact with them again.
