Open Forum on (In)Civility in Mediation

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 12:30pm

In connection with ABA Mediation Week, the CPR Institute’s Mediation Committee invites all who are interested to participate in a convenient Lunchtime Teleconference open to all on Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 from 12:30-1:30pm ET“Open Forum on (In)Civility in Mediation.”  Distinguished mediator and CPR panelist, Jack P. Levin, will recount some of the lessons and inevitable trials encountered in his years striving for greater civility in mediation. This dialogue will be followed by an opportunity for caller participation.  

While there has been research on the cost of incivility to corporations, we will explore the effects of this behavior in the mediation process, along with strategies for promoting civility in negotiations.

The CPR Mediation Committee is pleased to host this Mediation Week event for CPR members and those new to CPR.  We hope you will join us, prepared to share any anecdotes or observations on the effects of civility (and lack thereof!) in dispute settlement.

To register, contact You will be provided dial-in information and links to supplementary material upon registration.

The Mediation Committee is a consortium of CPR members throughout the world.  We are currently exploring ways to enhance the quality and effectiveness of corporate mediation practice, both domestically and internationally.  The Co-Chairs of the Committee are Erin Gleason, of Gleason Alvarez ADR, and Rick Richardson, of GlaxoSmithKline.
