Ethical issues can trip up even the most seasoned participants in mediation. Confidentiality is a particularly challenging aspect of mediation, and can pose any number of different and nuanced challenges. On February 8, join Practical Law, the International Institute on Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR), and Jenner & Block, as mediation experts Richard Ziegler, Noah Hanft, and Bernadette Miragliotta explore the contours of ethics in mediation.

During this webinar, the panel will address hypothetical mediation circumstances that illustrate multiple ethical issues with a particular emphasis on confidentiality questions - How far can a mediator go in facilitating constructive discussions between the parties when the mediator has committed to keep one side’s objectives confidential from the other? When can a party exploit an opposing party’s misconduct during the mediation? Can a mediator be compelled to testify about a party’s mediation positions? 

A short Q&A session will follow. Reserve your spot today!
