JAMS Commitment to Social Responsibility
JAMS Commitment to Pro Bono Work
The mission of JAMS is to provide the highest quality dispute resolution services to our clients and to our local, national and global communities. Our commitment and dedication is also reflected in our extensive Pro Bono work. Hundreds of hours are contributed every year by our panel of distinguished neutrals in alternative dispute resolution sessions. JAMS understands the importance of providing aid to those in need and supports various pro bono efforts and programs. JAMS is invested in doing good – especially for the public good.
JAMS Commitment to Giving Back to the Community
JAMS Society was created in 2001 to recognize and support volunteer opportunities and community involvement for JAMS associates at a local, "hands-on" level. All associates are encouraged to become members of their local society to collaborate on outreach programs, or to work individually on a project of their choice. JAMS Society members participate in a diverse array of volunteer activities around the country ranging from cleaning up the environment to improving the lives of children and seniors.
Whether through charity, leadership, or camaraderie, the collective groups that comprise JAMS Society represent the very core of our Mission, Vision, and Values.
JAMS Society members have elected to make a positive change in their communities by participating in the following recent projects:
JAMS Commitment to SustainabilityIn keeping with its values, JAMS is committed to sustainable environmental practices. In the past decade, JAMS has made strides towards reducing its carbon footprint on the environment in each of its premier Resolution Centers. The commitment to sustainability includes initiatives unique to each office’s location, such as those related to energy conservation, recycling, waste reduction, increased use of public transportation, and community efforts to support sustainable use of natural resources. Each JAMS Resolution Center continues to implement and refine customized “green” initiatives in an effort to act as diligent stewards of our shared environment.
JAMS mediators and arbitrators successfully resolve cases ranging in size, industry and complexity, typically achieving results more efficiently and cost-effectively than through litigation. JAMS neutrals are skilled in all aspects of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation, arbitration, special masters, discovery referees, project neutrals and dispute review boards.
