National Center for State Courts ADR Database

Court-connected alternative dispute resolution (ADR) has spread throughout the country over the past few decades. Every state has some type of court-connected ADR at some level. However, due to the “grassroots” nature of the movement and the “pilot” nature of many programs, such programs are rarely statewide. Thus, the question of “who’s doing what” has been difficult, if not impossible, to answer. This database of ADR programs and practices attempts to answer that question. They have attempted to collect qualifications, compensation, referral, and program information from every state (and within some states, every county). Information is searchable by program type (small claims, civil, family, appellate, criminal, juvenile, restorative justice, or probate) and location (statewide/multiple counties, or individual counties)
