Abstract

This essay, based on a talk given at AALS Annual Meeting of Professional Responsibility and Dispute Resolution Sections in 2001 reviews current developments in the ethics of the practice of Alternative (or "appropriate" ) Dispute Resolution. The essay reviews current issues of counseling about ADR, choice of law, conflicts of interest, confidentiality, choice and coercion in the use of mediation and other forms of ADR and in particular, lawyers' roles in this area of practice. The article refers to current developments in the ABA Ethics 2000 Commission's proposals for changes to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and other new efforts at drafting ethics and standards in ADR, including the new CPR-Georgetown Commission on Ethics and Standards in ADR's report on Provider Principles.
