With the rise of court mandated mediation and collaborative law, top notch mediation skills are essential to almost every practice area and practitioner. Advocating for your clients in mediation is very different than advocating for them in litigation. Knowing how to effectively advocate for your clients at mediations while still working toward an agreement will not only lead to more resolutions your clients are actually happy with, but will also help to ensure that they feel you’re still fighting for them. A dynamic panel of practicing mediators, including two retired Superior Court judges, will tell you what you should and should not be doing in mediation to achieve that balance and get the best possible results.
This isn’t the average program where you’re just lectured at, however. You’ll watch movie clips and hear stories, anecdotes, and jokes from the speakers to ensure an entertaining, as well as educational experience.
No matter what type of mediation you participate in or how long you’ve been attending mediations, this program will provide you with useful tips and tricks to help you more successfully mediate on behalf of your clients. If you ever attend mediations, you need to purchase this program.
