Is Your ADR Safe? Reducing the Risk of Violence Before, During and After Sessions
12 PM GMT
The ABA Dispute Resolution Section, Mediation Committee is pleased to announce our second monthly teleconference of 2015. Please join us on Tuesday, April 28th at 12pm.
Many ADR professionals saw the headlines when an angry mediation participant shot two other participants (an attorney and client) at a Phoenix law firm in 2013. That tragedy is probably the most extreme recent example of violence in connection with an ADR process, but unfortunately it is not unique. In response to this concern, the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) established a task force to study and make recommendations on how best to promote the safety of ADR practitioners and participants. In a 45-minute webinar, two task force members – task force chair Stephen Kotev, and former ABA DR Section Council member Susan Yates – will discuss the key safety advice that is covered in the 16 pages of written recommendations.
