"Mediator Disclosures in Private and in Court Connected Civil Court Mediation"
 
Through the use of a hypothetical set of facts lifted from the pages of real life, this highly interactive program will explore the often overlooked issue of mediator disclosure. Using the standards set forth in the California Rules of Court as a guide, human circumstances and case dynamics will be evaluated and weighed from the respective standpoints of the participants and the mediator. Though these standards are, technically, applicable only to general civil cases mediated within a superior court's mediation program, they offer a comprehensive framework for the examination of what is or is not good practice in the context of most mediation. Of interest to mediators, parties and attorneys, and having application to private and to court-connected mediation, this program is designed to spark thought and discussion as to mediator disclosure and its bearing on providing an impartiar process.
