Town Hall: Impacts of the L.A. Superior Court Closing its ADR Dept.

Proposed changes to the LASC ADR Program expected by June 2013 have created an uproar in the mediation community. Should the changes be implemented, they will affect the entire justice system, and the mediation program in particular.
SCMA has responded to the strong response from the mediation community and taken a leadership position by forming a task force and scheduling a Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday, January 15, 2013
JOIN US for an open conversation, moderated by Mediator Lee Jay Berman
, about the expected changes and discussion of what SCMA can do to address the potential reduction in services and/or closure of the LASC ADR Department. This meeting is a key opportunity for all of us to gather with leaders in our field, to share our views, and hear other perspectives.  
All members and the mediation community at large are invited to attend. You need not be an SCMA member to attend and voice your concerns.
