Statements by general counsel of support for good causes: ADR, diversity, billing standards, etc.

The CPR International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution www.cpradr.org is a non-profit initiative of general counsel, law firms and legal academics “whose mission it is to install alternative dispute resolution (ADR) into the main stream of legal practice.” More than 4,000 operating companies have committed to its Corporate Policy Statement on Alternatives to Litigation©, according to Robert Haig, Ed., Successful Partnering Between Inside and Outside Counsel (Thomson Reuters/West 2009 Supp.), Chapter 57 at §57:47.

Reminded of the Call to Action, a widespread commitment signed by general counsel in support of diversity, aware now of this commitment to ADR, bearing in mind the LEDES undertaking by a number of legal departments, and suspecting that there is at least one statement of support signed by many general counsel regarding pro bono involvement, I predict in the next year or two a collective commitment by legal departments to sound environmental practices.
