Retired Appeals Court Judge J.D. Smith highlights Importance of International Intercollegiate Mediation Tournament at Brenau University Nov. 6-8

Members of the Brenau’s meditation team were on hand at the Gainesville Rotary Club meeting Monday, Nov. 3, to meet retired Appeals Court Judge J.D. Smith who now works part time as a mediator and arbitrator with JAMS, a nationally-based dispute resolution firm.

“Mediation for me is satisfying because you get to hammer out some kind of shared solutions that both sides can live with,” Smith said during his talk.  “You are getting to decisions and solutions that you are never going to achieve with a judge and a jury in a courtroom.”
