Who should attend: Mediators, arbitrators, parenting coordinators, and counsel attending med-arb.
Learning level: All levels
Med-Arb combines the benefits of mediation and arbitration by first trying to help the parties of a dispute work out an agreement through mediation. Should that fail, the mediator can assume the role of an arbitrator and render a binding decision. This is a relatively new and exciting tool used to resolve disputes. Don't miss out on this opportunity to attend this course designed specifically for those wishing to learn about Med-Arb.
At this course you will:
- discuss the advantages and disadvantages of med-arb
- examine the unique ethical issues that may arise in the med-arb process
- review the necessary requirements in a med-arb agreement
- explore the qualities and skills required by the med-arbitrator
- practice the skills required for the mediation phase of the med-arb process
- discuss the professional standards and regulations applicable to the med-arb process
- review the relevant case law regarding med-arb
