A recent survey of New South Wales Accredited Specialists in Family Law has collected data about the use by this influential group of lawyers of ADR processes, as well as what they perceive to be the barriers to the greater use of ADR. The hypothesis was that lawyers were using ADR in family law with greater frequency, that they were becoming sophisticated consumers of ADR services, and that there was evidence of a cultural shift towards ADR within the legal profession. This is a preliminary analysis of the data collected.
