Dr. Gray was part of Dr. King’s inner circle and had a personal relationship with Dr. King.

Ethical Issues in Alternative Dispute Resolution (Recorded on 6/3/15)

1.0 hour CLE credit in Enhanced Ethics
Mediation presumes that two equally powerful parties can rely on a neutral process to arrive at a resolution of their disputes.  This theory presumes equality between the parties, an understanding of the process and a reliance on a mediator to constantly ensure the mediator’s own neutrality and insulation from pressures from the court and others to resolve the dispute.  This raises many ethical issues for all parties involved: the attorneys advising clients in the mediation and the mediators resolving the dispute.  This CLE will address recent ethics opinions from neighboring states as well as ethical guidelines with a panel of mediators and attorneys from the Office of Disciplinary Counsel.
