    This webinar will review key concerns and practice tips related to virtual and online mediations. In the wake of the COVID-19 many practitioners are working from home offices or remote locations which presents an overlay of challenges to effective confidential communication between attorney and client and among parties on the same side and effective mediation advocacy and negotiation by parties and their attorneys. How can you work within these constraints to collaborate with your client representatives and effectively present your position to the mediator and the opposing parties? Addressing these challenges requires additional skills and techniques. The panel will explore what steps can be taken to properly prepare to mediate in a virtual and online forum and identify measures you can take to facilitate the process. The panel will also suggest means for addressing security during the online dispute resolution process and what, if any, additional measures, agreements or steps should counsel be asking for and insisting on from other parties to the process, as well as their neutral. Finally, the panel will review the ethical concerns raised by the foregoing and discuss Rules 1.1 and 1.6 of the Model Rules of Professional Responsibility.
