Advanced Commercial Mediation Training
The Dispute Resolution Section of the New York State Bar Association is proud to offer a special program designed for mediators who have completed — or plan to complete — a minimum of three days of basic mediation training and who desire to enhance their commercial mediation skills. This program will focus on identifying the barriers to settlement and the ways to overcome them. In addition to refining and deepening facilitative skills and orientation, the program will address ways of facilitating evaluative analyses or offering evaluative feedback to help the parties reach a resolution. This can include refining the handling of risk and transaction cost analysis, including the use of decision trees, as well as utilizing a variety of impasse breakers. The program will offer approaches to problems that arise when there are multiple parties or when one or more of the defendants has, or may have, insurance coverage with one or more insurance companies as well as ways to overcome impasse. Finally, the program will discuss the ethical issues that arise under various scenarios and how to deal with them.
Co-sponsored by the Committee on Continuing Legal Education, The Dispute Resolution Section and the Nassau County Bar Association.
