Effective Mediation Advocacy: Key Skills for Lawyers at the Bargaining Table
The program is intended for litigation attorneys who are both new to and experienced with mediation as a dispute-resolution process.
This is Part Two of a Three-Part Series:
Part One: Preparing for Mediation: Your Clients and Yourself
Part Two: Effective Mediation Advocacy – Key Skills for Lawyers at the Bargaining Table
Part Three: Closing the Deal – Overcoming Apparent Impasses in a Mediation
The entire series will be available Friday, May 21, 2021
This session will address the roles of the lawyer, client, and mediator at the mediation and how attorneys can help shift the focus of mediation from posturing over positions to the development of outcomes that serve the interests of all parties. Examples will be provided of ways for lawyers to facilitate a productive dispute resolution process even in the face of oppositional conduct of the other side and to work with the mediator to achieve outcomes more consonant with their client’s interests than continued litigation, whether and how to make initial statements at the mediation session, and ways to conduct themselves whether in joint session or caucuses.
