    Chris will address the current state of mediation and unique issues facing our profession as we continue to evolve during these challenging times. 

    The discussion is intended to be extremely interactive and will include discussions and strategies about the most effective and best practices in our changing mediation world, remote mediation challenges and opportunities, and thoughts on what permanent changes the pandemic has brought to the mediation community and its constituents – lawyers, clients, and the Courts – all of whom we serve.

    Friday, November 4, 2022 • Held Virtually by Zoom

    Program begins at 8:45am CT

    (9:45am ET / 8:45am CT / 6:45am PT)


    Join us this fall for our Advanced Attorney-Mediator Training as we explore a variety of mediation topics that will inspire you to learn from the past while focusing on the future of your mediation practice. This program is sure to add to your toolbox as experienced mediators share their knowledge about both general mediation skills as well as subject-specific topics. We will explore best-practices in the virtual mediation world that many of us are now navigating while also discussing how to bring the best versions of ourselves to each mediation.  Sessions will also cover relevant updates in discrimination cases as well as important considerations in workers’ compensation and personal injury cases. The final session will be an interactive panel discussion about applying ethical standards in mediation. We hope you will join us online for a full day of learning!
