North Dakota Statewide ADR Neutral Roster

The North Dakota Judicial System encourages the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution or "ADR" as a potentially more cost effective means of resolving disputes. ADR may result in greater satisfaction of all participants.

To facilitate Alternative Dispute Resolution, the State Court Administrator maintains a roster of neutrals who may be used by parties to disputes. Those on the roster meet certain minimum requirements for listing. Parties may use neutrals not on the roster.

Within 60 days of filing of a lawsuit, parties must discuss ADR and file a statement as to whether it will be used.
