MCLE Civil Mediation Workshop 2017

Civil Mediation Workshop 2017

Presented By: MCLE

About the Event
Rule 8 of the Supreme Judicial Court’s Uniform Rules of Dispute Resolution prescribes system-wide standards for court-connected alternative dispute services in Massachusetts. Its guidelines establish training, evaluation, mentoring, and continuing education requirements for mediators. MCLE is pleased to present this four-day workshop, which trains people to mediate civil cases under Rule 8. Special Focus Mediation is often used to resolve disputes in cases involving bankruptcy; business and business torts; commercial; construction; contracts; consumer protection; education; employment; environmental; family business; health care; insurance; intellectual property; landlord-tenant; partnership issues; probate, trusts, and estates; product liability; professional liability; real estate, land use and zoning; securities; and torts.

Basic mediation training emphasizes interactive participation and encourages “learning by doing.” It includes a mixture of theory and practice. Lecture and role-play sessions cover basic considerations in the types of disputes addressed by mediation.

MCLE’s Civil Mediation Workshop teaches you: the steps of the mediation process; the role of the mediator; mediation skills/strategies; listening; using neutral language; rephrasing; asking follow-up questions; summarizing; identifying issues; negotiating agreement; note taking; agreement writing; ethical and legal issues in mediation; values; bias awareness; personally sensitive issues; physical/substance abuse; cultural diversity; mediation demonstration; and coached role-plays.
