An ADR Systems case manager will help parties determine the best remote option for their case.
If your case goes forward via Zoom, an ADR Systems staff person will email you a secure link to your session a day or two prior to the session. You need only click the link to access the videoconference at the appropriate time. You will be placed in a waiting room prior to being admitted to the videoconferencing session by an ADR Systems staff person or neutral. From there, if your session is a mediation, you will be sorted into breakout rooms. These breakout rooms are private; only the neutral, as host of the videoconference, can move in and out of them, providing you and your clients a secluded caucusing space just as you would have during an in-person session.
We recommend that attorneys follow a short checklist to confirm they and their clients are ready for a remote mediation or arbitration. Review our articles on the subject below:
