The American Bar Association Section on Dispute Resolution has announced that it has honored premier ADR and negotiation web site Mediate.com as the institutional recipient of the prestigious Lawyer as Problem Solver Award.
From the ABA press release:
Mediate.com offers the field one of the most used information resources, replete with blogs, cutting edge articles, news of mediation and negotiation practice, as well as a place for interactive dialogue. The website is a practical tool for practitioners and helps them become more effective problem solvers.
Mediate.com applies the technology of the internet directly to lawyers and dispute resolution practitioners. The founders of Mediate.com had the foresight to see the importance and applications of internet and bring them to bear on a developing field of practice. This groundbreaking website has given tools and resources to the public and to ADR professionals to do their own problem solving in virtually every field of law.
Jeffrey Krivis, a well known leader in the dispute resolution field, expressed it best when he observed that Mediate.com “has become to mediators what Google has become to the Internet.”
To my friends at Mediate.com: congratulations on this well-deserved honor.
