Stories Mediators Tell: From Rookie to Veteran, Exploring the Spectrum of Mediation
1.5 hours CLE credit
Buena Vista Conference Center, New Castle, DE
The ADR Section is pleased to participate in the ABA Mediation Week. As lawyers and mediators, we understand both the challenges and rewards of helping parties in conflict reach an agreement by getting past differences in positions, by understanding each other’s perspectives better, and by finding ways to get their important interests met, while staying true to their values and belief systems. This year’s theme, Stories Mediators Tell, seeks to recognize and share inspirational stories of practitioners in the field who want others to experience the art of mediation. Their stories share advice on how to handle certain situations, share what mediation is about, and share how certain situations were handled. The CLE is preceded by the Advanced ADR Practicum also held at the Buena Vista Conference Center. All are welcome to join us for a reception to follow.- DSB10132014STORI
