2013/2014 Annual Report:

This Section monitored legislative initiatives during the 2014 session of the Maryland General Assembly, devoting special attention to proposed legislation that would incorporate provisions from the Uniform Collaborative Law Act into Maryland law. It also continued actively participating in the Mediator Dialogue Group, collaborating on a pilot project in Montgomery County and developing a Memorandum of Understanding regarding mediation referrals to private mediators in that county. The Section produced five webinars and a full day of training at its annual Spring Event, featuring Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera, Court of Appeals of Maryland, as guest speaker, as well as the presentation of the Section's annual Chief Judge Robert M. Bell Award to Martin Kranitz. It will present a program, entitled "Making the Most of ADR in the Business Litigation Context: Putting the Counsel into Counselor", in conjunction with the Litigation and Business Law Sections at the MSBA Annual Meeting.
