Abstract

The Ethics 2000 Commission is tackling an important subject by determining both to develop rules covering neutrals -- mediators and arbitrators -- and to incorporate them into the Model Rules. As one involved in legal ethics who first worked as a mediator in domestic relations cases over twenty years ago, and who now works as a neutral through the American Arbitration Association, I recognize that such rules will have increasing significance. The following are some thoughts about the direction I believe such rules should take, beginning with the need to have separate rules applied to mediators and arbitrators.
