Video: Getting and Keeping Your Mediation "Win": Law and Ethics to Make Mediation Work for You
Fran L. Tetunic, Esq., Nova Southeastern University
Mediation requires skills that are different than those needed for litigation. Although it may be tempting to view Mediation as a hurdle to clear on the way to trial, developing good mediation skills can often help attorneys achieve a better outcome for their clients. If maintaining control of the case and keeping matters confidential is important to your client, then taking time to develop your mediation skills is a wise investment in your professional development. At this seminar, you will learn about selecting a mediator, timing the mediation, preparing your client, developing collaborative skills and more. Florida's Mediation Confidentiality and Privilege Act will be examined and an interactive exercise using a case fact pattern is included.
