With all the tangible and intangible costs associated with litigation today, mediation is becoming more common as a means of resolving disputes. Judges are ordering or at least recommending them, and contracts are stipulating them as part of their alternative dispute resolution clauses. As a result, good law schools around the country are including mediation and mediation advocacy courses in their curriculum, and many retired judges and lawyers are hanging out their shingles as they build their mediation practices.
Having mediated many disputes across a range of practice areas, I have noticed that many attorneys trained and experienced in litigation, do not necessarily have the skills to effectively negotiate, mediate or to guide their clients through the mediation process. This course is intended to provide attorneys with advanced knowledge and skills in negotiation and mediation, which will hopefully arm them with more arrows in their quiver to resolve disputes efficiently and effectively while preserving their client’s dignity and resources.
This course will be a skill-based course as opposed to information-based and will include role play simulations to demonstrate technique.
