Minnesota Neutrals: A Conversation About Impartiality and Rule 114

Event Description

Online registrations are now closed. To register, please email Section Manager, Yajaira Lansiquot, at ylansiquot@mnbars.org.

Remote Only Event

In this ethics session, Professor Sharon Press will share results from last year’s session on mediator neutrality and impartiality and expand the conversation into what does this mean for all of the Rule 114 ADR “neutral” options? In this interactive session, participants will reflect on their own practice – what they do during the process and how they describe impartiality to the participants in advance. This final section will include a review of the Rule 114 requirements for Agreements to Participate in ADR. 


Sharon Press, Professor of Law and Director of the Dispute Resolution Institute at Mitchell Hamline School of Law
