    Ethics and Professionalism in Mediation: Ethical Issues Faced by Mediators and Advocates

    12 PM GMT

    Program Description:

    The panel will share advice on how to recognize and solve potential ethical issues in the mediation process. How do advocates walk the fine line between puffery and lying? How do mediators move from a conceptual understanding of the Model Standards of Conduct for Mediators to applying the rules in specific cases. What guidance do mediators have for appropriate actions? Perhaps more importantly, what potential sanctions do mediators face if they violate an ethical rule? Does the answer differ for attorney-mediators and non-attorney mediators?

     

    About the Series:

    This 6-part mediation series is a unique opportunity to learn from some of the leading mediators and neutrals in the country. Each month from January through July 2016 we will host a webinar that will focus on different phases of the mediation process, as well as useful analytical techniques and strategies for mediators. Programming will also provide in-depth discussion on common barriers and ethical issues mediators face in reaching durable agreements.

     

    Webinars that have already aired will be available for purchase after the series concludes.

     

    Series Schedule:

    Each webinar will run from 12:00 ET - 1:15 ET.
