JAMS ADR Blog by Chris Poole
In a recent podcast produced by the National Association of Women Judges (NAWJ), Richard Birke, executive director of the JAMS Institute, and JAMS neutrals Hon. Frank Maas (Ret.) and Hon. Elizabeth White (Ret.), president elect of the NAWJ, discuss how JAMS has developed a multi-pronged strategy to offer virtual ADR to its clients.
