CLE

Straight Talk with a Judge: ADR 

The Colorado Judicial Institute’s popular CLE program, Straight Talk with a Judge, is back in July and exploring the topic of ADR.

Why focus on ADR for a CLE taught by judges?

Courts are ordering mediation and other ADR techniques in Civil Case Management Orders (CMO) with increasing frequency and in more legal issues. Colorado courts have found that incorporating ADR techniques can resolve cases more speedily, efficiently, cost-effectively, and satisfactorily than if a court tried the case.

As always, judges teach all of our tracks, and our small class size and interactive format mean you get to ask the questions the judges are answering. All participants will receive one Ethics CLE Credit and one General CLE Credit.

Tracks include: 

Ethics Credit
All attendees will be registered in the ethics track.

Negotiation Ethics
Judge Russell E. Carparelli, Colorado Court of Appeals (Retired)

General Credits
Attendees will be placed in one track from the list below. Attendees will be asked to select their prefered tracks at registration. 

Mediation: Maximizing Your Potential for Success in Complex Cases
Judge Robbie Barr, Florida Circuit Judge (Retired)

Tips for Preparing for and Participating in Mediation
Judge C. Scott Crabtree, 17th Judicial District (Retired)

Best ADR Practices
Judge Michael E. Hegarty, United States Magistrate Judge for the District of Colorado
