New categories added to World Directory of Alternative Dispute Resolution Blogs

New categories added to World Directory of ADR Blogs The number of blogs catalogued by the World Directory of ADR Blogs has more than doubled since I launched it in June 2006, today listing more than 80 blogs representing 15 countries.

It originally listed nine blog categories:

General Alternative Dispute Resolution Blogs
ADR-Friendly Blogs
ADR Marketing Blogs
Arbitration Blogs
Conflict Resolution & Peace Blogs
Mediation Blogs
Negotiation Blogs
Online Dispute Resolution Blogs
Restorative Justice Blogs

To reflect the increasing variety of blogs that have joined the ADR conversation, I recently added two new categories: Video Blogs and Podcasts and Innovations in the Practice of Law.

"Video Blogs and Podcasts" of course needs no explanation. Listed there you will find:

Conflict Learning Audio (Bill Warters)
Mediation vBlog Project (Geoff Sharp)
Negotiating Tip of the Week (Josh Weiss)

"Innovations in the Practice of Law" are blogs published by those who are dedicated to pushing the boundaries on the traditional practice of law. These bloggers champion the human side of the law and seek innovative ways to deliver justice, serve clients, resolve disputes, or transform the future of legal practice. Typically these bloggers are mediators themselves, are advocates of ADR, or embrace other kinds of collaborative practices. In this category are:

Human Law (Justin Patten)
Idealawg (Stephanie West Allen)
Legal Sanity (Arnie Herz)
the [non]billable hour (Matt Homan)
SHLEP: The Self-Help Law ExPress (David Giacalone)
What About Clients (Dan Hull)

As always, if you wish to add your blog or someone else's to the World Directory of ADR Blogs, please let me know. It's a commercial-free site, and there is no cost to be listed. The Directory has information on submitting your blog and submission guidelines.
