Greenberg Conducts Training as Part of NY’s System-wide ADR Initiative

On October 19th, Professor Elayne E. Greenberg conducted a virtual training entitled “Empowering Parties to Overcome Impasse(s) and Get Past ‘No.'” Professor Greenberg educated about impasse-breaking strategies to use in settlement conferences that will help parties overcome the frequent emotional and structural impasses that prevent cases from settling. The training was attended by judges, their court attorneys, JHOs and ADR program staff representing every Judicial District in NYS. Under Chief Judge Janet DiFiore’s leadership, NYS has adopted a presumptive ADR approach to case management. This training is part of that system-wide initiative.
