With the increasing expense and delay involved in the American adversarial litigation system, aggravated by the recent pandemic environment, the legal profession is learning to appreciate mediation as a valuable alternative form of dispute resolution.
Abraham Lincoln was prophetic when he stated, "Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser---in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker, the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.”
This seminar will inform the audience of the elements of mediation and the application of principles of mediation to be purposefully applied in obtaining what’s truly best for all parties, a resolution that will provide conciliation, reconciliation, and peacemaking.
