1.0 Ethics CLE Credits


Description: Ethical mediation rests on the mediator’s ability to provide a quality process by which parties can resolve disputes with the assistance of an impartial third party. The mediator’s impartiality can often be jeopardized in the face of challenging behavior (e.g. hostility, arrogance, stubbornness, etc.) or even their own implicit biases towards attorneys and parties. On the flip side, parties and attorneys may form their own judgments of the mediator. This presentation will explore how mediators can maintain impartiality in this current era of political polarization, where assumptions and biases are more salient than ever.
