History of Dispute Resolution in Ohio

The Dispute Resolution Section of the Supreme Court of Ohio currently is working on a project to record stories and gather information documenting the history of dispute resolution in Ohio. You are invited to share your memories and experiences of the development of court-connected dispute resolution options in Ohio by participating in a written history interview.

Ohio has long been recognized as a leader in creating dispute resolution options to the traditional judicial system, starting with the Night Prosecutor Program in 1971 in Columbus, Ohio. While efforts have been made to preserve the history and development of dispute resolution, an opportunity exists to archive a written history. Understanding the historical development of dispute resolution in Ohio is essential to sustaining its success.

Submissions will be accepted through Dec. 31, 2017 and can be completed using the forms below. Please email the completed forms to OralHistory@sc.ohio.gov or by regular mail to:

Supreme Court of Ohio Law Library, Attn: Oral History Project
65 South Front Street
