Court Leadership and Caseflow Management – the Practice of Dispute Resolution and Settlement Practices
Our latest posting covers the caseflow management practice of providing processes to resolve and settle cases. These processes can serve as methods to problem-solve, to narrow issues in dispute, or fully resolve the issues within a case, and different settlement practices can be considered for different types of cases. This posting includes examples of court actions to use dispute resolution and shares practical techniques to put them to use.
As with all caseflow practices, courts also benefit by periodic review of protocols and a willingness to modify or expand practices based on the caseload, case need, and local court operational needs.
