Ten Things Lawyers Love/Hate About Mediators

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Good mediators help attorneys get resolution in a case before trial. But even good mediators can drive us crazy. In this program, attorneys and mediators will discuss tools used by mediators that work or hurt resolution, the appropriateness of somewhat manipulative efforts, evaluative versus facilitative mediation, the process of mediation and "late in the day" resolutions, and why mediators do many of the things they do. This program will provide attorneys with better mediating skills and will let mediators hear what attorneys are really thinking -- a "win-win" -- just like good mediation!

This program will focus on

  • attorneys understanding mediator tools and approaches to better utilize mediation for case resolution;
  • attorneys learning how to cope with mediator tactics that are not furthering mediation and may be inhibiting resolution;
  • attorneys hearing from other attorneys on mediation tools and approaches that may work for them;
  • educating mediators on tools and approaches that are not effective to improve their ability to help clients; and
  • educating mediators on the approaches used by other mediators that are effective, so mediators can consider different styles and tools in mediations.
