The Alabama Center for Dispute Resolution, Inc. (the Center) is a non-profit corporation organized to "develop, implement, administer, assist, and manage alternative dispute resolution (ADR) programs in the courts, neighborhoods, educational facilities and government agencies within the State of Alabama."

After receiving a start-up grant from the Alabama Law Foundation, the Center opened in August of 1994, with office space supplied by the Alabama State Bar. The Center operates under the supervision of the Alabama Supreme Court Commission on Dispute Resolution in conjunction with the Alabama State Bar Dispute Resolution Section. Read more about each:

Shortly after it opened, the Center became the 18th state office of dispute resolution to join the Council of Statewide Programs for Consensus Building and Problem Solving, a nation-wide network of state offices of dispute resolution that share information. As of October 1996, the Center was funded under the Alabama Supreme Court's budget.

Contact the Center for any of the following:

  • ADR information, brochures and materials,

  • the names of mediators in a particular county,
  • upcoming mediator or arbitrator training,
  • mediator standards and ethics,
