The Alternative Dispute Resolution Section (ADR) holds a business meeting at 12 Noon prior to the CLE program that begins by 12:15 pm.

Webinar CLE Program:

This session is going to focus on experts in mediation. In many alternative dispute practices mediators are rarely used, but in Mike’s practice experts are the norm. Experts can be very effective and powerful in helping to resolve issues if they are properly prepared and you have knowledge in the area in order to ask appropriate questions and encourage interactive techniques to educate all of the parties in mediation.  Experts can help diffuse tension, address unrealistic expectations, and clear up key points that may be misunderstood by the clients, the experts, or attorneys. This session will provide you with what you need to consider with the application of experts in mediations.
