Who We Are

This is the community for all ADR professionals: mediators, arbitrators, and lawyers representing and advising their clients. Click here to join now.


How to Join

You may be "signed-up" on this network, but that doesn't make you a section member! Here's how you join the section.

Are you already a member of the WSBA? Just sign-in to your account, go to the ADR Section product page, add it to your cart, check-out and you're done.

Are you not a member of WSBA? Even if you're not a lawyer you can join the section. Start at the Join a Section page. There you have two ways to join. You can either can download a paper registration form or create your own account to join the section there.
