Minnesota Supreme Court Continuing Education publishes rosters of organizations and individuals who meet requirements to provide alternative dispute resolution services under Rule 114 of the General Rules of Practice for the District Courts.
Two rosters are available. One covers neutrals registered to practice in the Civil area. The other covers the Family Law area.
Please note the official "Roster Disclaimer" as follows:
|Neutrals on this roster are considered "qualified" under Rule 114 of the Minnesota General Rules of Practice for the District Courts. Qualified neutrals are
not certified or licensed in the field of ADR. In choosing an ADR neutral, you should inquire about the qualifications and experience of the neutral. Roster
information is current up to the publication date displayed at the top of this document.|
Because Rule 114.02(b) provides that neutral fact finders selected by parties for their expertise need not be on the State Court Administrator's roster, the Minnesota Supreme Court's list is not necessarily a comprehensive listing of organizations and individuals capable of providing Alternative Dispute Resolution services.
Rule 114.03 provides that court administrators are to provide information about ADR processes to parties involved in litigation. This information is sent to attorneys of record and directly to parties who are not represented by an attorney. Attorneys, in turn, are to provide this ADR information to their clients.
If parties in a case are unable to agree on a neutral, the District Court will appoint a neutral at the time it issues a scheduling order for a case.
Parties have the responsibility for paying the neutral. Rule 114 presumes that parties will split the costs of the ADR process but parties may agree on a different allocation.

Disclaimer: Pritchard Law Webs assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of the information published by the Minnesota Supreme Court or the qualifications of any person or organization listed. Listees may or may not be attorneys admitted to practice before the courts of the State of Minnesota. The rosters do not identify whether a particular individual is a member of the bar. Bar membership is not a prerequisite to being placed on the rosters.
