Let’s Get Evaluative…How and When Do We Do It?

Presented by Professor Dwight Golann, Speaker and Author of Mediating Legal Disputes: Effective Techniques to Resolve Cases

As good mediators, we constantly evaluate what is happening in our cases. And we keep our opinions hidden—or do we?

Data shows that mediators regularly convey their viewpoints, indirectly and even unconsciously.

We’ll show a video of leading US and foreign mediators conveying viewpoints, directly and indirectly, and ask you to discuss:

  • When do you provide direction to parties?
  • On what topics, using what techniques?
  • Do you ever “leak” a viewpoint, intentionally or not?

We will also ask our corporate and law firm colleagues to reflect on their experience with mediator evaluations - the good, the bad, and the ugly - and offer their views on how mediators can best offer their perspectives as part of a problem-solving process.

This is a chance to reflect on what you do and to hear from colleagues about this charged topic.

1.5 hours of NY Professional Practice CLE will be provided. See below for full CLE details.
