    Mediation Mythbusters: A Game Show Experience - May 18th - 10:00am
    Dispute Resolution Section

    Forget those other seminars and join our simulated game show where experienced attorney-advocate contestants from diverse areas of business, employment, and construction law, will field questions in order to bust the myths surrounding mediation. Misconceptions regarding both private and court-affiliated mediation persist in the legal community despite decades of increasing recognition and use of the process in state and federal courts nationwide. Some myths arise from widely held, but erroneous, assumptions about the mediation process; some stem from a fundamental misunderstanding of the role of the mediator; and some from a simple lack of knowledge of how the mediation process can be adapted and customized to benefit your particular cases or clients. The validity of the contestants answers will be confirmed – or challenged – with a PowerPoint presentation of mediation’s historical background and best practices for maximizing benefits to your clients, both in the context of private mediations and court-affiliated mediations under state Court Rule 1:40 and Federal Practice Local Rule 301.1.
