Product Description:

Resolving matters before trial is viewed as best practice.  Mediation in particular is becoming a necessary step in many legal processes.  In Washington, Chapter 7.06 of the RCW makes it mandatory to arbitrate certain civil cases and the Superior Court has mandatory arbitration rules. 

In this recorded seminar, our esteemed faculty will walk you through the world of Alternative Dispute Resolution, with a focus on Mediation.  They will cover the process of mediation, various mediation styles and models used in Washington, the considerations one must take before mediating a case, drafting settlements, and ethical considerations surrounding mediation. 

Topics include:
  • What is alternative dispute resolution?
  • What is mediation?
  • Pre-mediation considerations & early stage planning
  • The process of mediation
  • Considerations impacting mediation
  • Drafting settlements and post-mediation concerns
  • Ethical considerations of mediation
This course is designed from the lens of an attorney representing a client in a Mediation proceeding.  It is not geared towards those who want to become mediators – although that is discussed briefly in the first session
