CIVIL MEDIATION; UNDERSTANDING THE PROCESS AND ADVOCATING EFFECTIVELY. This program is designed for all levels of experience from those with multiple mediations to those new to the process. Understanding the factors which affect the success of mediation includes timing, when to mediate, selecting the right mediator for the case, preparing the client, creating effective submission materials for the mediator, developing a negotiation strategy, and taking full advantage of the opportunities that mediation and the mediator offer including overcoming impasse and difficult bargaining techniques.
Are you an Ethical Attorney Negotiator?
Centers for Excellence, Washburn, Topeka, KS
This CLE session will blend an initial live negotiation exercise with discussion and application of ethical issues and related rules arising out of that exercise. The initial exercise is based on the negotiation style and examples found on the “American Pickers” show and seeks to get participants to evaluate their personal negotiation style and how that affected the outcome of the “negotiation” session as compared to other participants. Participants will be paired off for the first half of the session to negotiate and then a series of questions and related discussion will take the participants through the applicable legal ethical rules. Participants will be challenged to contemplate whether they feel they complied or may need to adjust their style and negotiation tactics
