"Divorce Mediation Basics: The Ultimate
The Program is designed to be a step-by-step walk-through
of the mediation process from inception to completion. Attendees will be given a thorough checklist for proper divorce mediation
protocol, and will have hard copies of example letters distributed that are essential communications between the mediator
and parties. While this program will describe a divorce process, the skills and tools can be applied across disciplines.
With the courts continuing backlog, mediation is an efficient and cost effective means of settling disputes, whether
it be in familiarl, contractual, or civil disputes. Mastering the art of becoming an effective mediator can help maintain
client satisfaction while diversifying and growing any attorney's practice. This presentation will give litigation attorneys
interested in finding a different means of resolving conflict the tools necessary to develop mediation skills.
This will also allow burgeoning mediators better understand the tips and tricks necessary for their practice. They
will come away with a concrete path to follow in each and every session while garnering new tools and tactics to ensure each
session is a successful one.
