Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr., the head of the ADR Working Group, described the Department's long standing commitment to ADR use and cited many of the impressive results of the use of mediation in resolving disputes with citizens and across the federal government. Other panelists showcased new and innovative programs involving workplace disputes, enforcement of regulations, contracts disputes with the government and other new and emerging areas.
