A release from the Court this evening begins:

The Indiana Supreme Court is seeking comments from judges, attorneys and the public as it considers proposed rule amendments governing Alternative Dispute Resolution. The proposed changes include the following:

  • Amending Rule 2.7 to add a section (F) that would permit a non-lawyer mediator to complete certain documents as part of the mediation process without violating the rules governing the unauthorized practice of law.
  • Adding a new Rule (2.12) that would permit a mediator to provide legal information, but not legal advice to parties, without violating the rules governing the unauthorized practice of law.
