Events & Training

The Association of Attorney-Mediators offers an array of CLE/CME professional development opportunities throughout the year, including:

    • Advanced Attorney-Mediator Training in the spring and fall (full-day training)
    • CLE seminars on timely industry topics

AAM does not offer basic mediation training, but you may reach out to the AAM National office for guidance on basic trainings that comply with AAM's membership requirements.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, AAM is allowing applicants to take a live online synchronous basic mediation training course that meets all other membership requirements.

    We hope you can join us on November 4, 2022 for our Annual Meeting, Advanced Attorney-Mediator Training, Annual Meeting and CLE Seminar.

    “Learning from the Past, Focusing on the Future”

    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!
