Advanced Mediation Techniques: What Every Mediator and Lawyer Should Know – Jackson – March 16
The ADR Section of The Mississippi Bar is hosting an advanced mediation skills workshop on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at the MS Bar Center (643 North State Street) in Jackson. While the seminar is being offered to all members of The Mississippi Bar, it is specifically designed for experienced mediators who want to learn techniques that will assist them in their mediation practices. The workshop will also be beneficial to Lawyers as tips will be shared on how they and their clients can more effectively participate in the mediation process. Topics will include joint sessions; preparing for and representing clients, effective use of the caucus to facilitate agreement; preventing impasse and avoiding deadlock/closing techniques; practical issues in mediation; and a panel discussion on the ethical issues in mediation. Due to the advanced nature of this program and space limitations, registration is limited. For additional information and the full agenda, visit the registration webpage.
