This program is designed for attorneys with limited or no mediation experience. This introductory course will inform the attorney on the basics of pre-mediation planning for self, the client, mediator and opposing party. We will discuss navigating the mediation session to inform the attorney on the use of the joint session, caucusing, working with the mediator, apologies, settlement documentation and post session activities in the event of impasse. Attending this program will be helpful if the attorney wants to proceed to Mediation 201 or 301.
