Settlement Counsel: 10 Free Internet Resources


It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the Settlement Counsel concept — I’ve written about it, I’ve published an Updated List of Settlement Counsel, and I’m speaking about the idea in practice with Gary McGowan and Christopher Nolland today at the 15th Annual Section of Dispute Resolution’s Spring Conference.

For lawyers and clients wanting to learn more, a quick Internet search for “Settlement Counsel” doesn’t easily lead to the most informative — and free — resources, so I pulled together a list of links to where you might want to start.  Naturally, if you think I missed a good one, please let me know.

With all that said, take a look at who serves as settlement counsel.  You’ll be glad you did.
A special thanks to Spencer Guy for his assistance with this list and several other settlement counsel projects as he finished his final year of law school.

Take a look at some of these resources on Special Settlement Counsel.  You’ll be glad you did.

*A special thanks to our friends at Alternatives, who provide a free resource for CPR Institute members but who normally charge nonmembers for articles such as James E. McGuire’s article and the Alternatives Special Supplement listed above.  For those who’d like more on Settlement Counsel from Alternatives, the balance of their publication is accessible for a fee on the Wiley Online Library’s Alternatives Page.

A special additional thanks to Keaton Forcht for his assistance with this list as he finished his final year of law school.
