Co-Mediating: Why? When? How?
Friday, 5/29/2020 | 1100 AM - 12:00pm EDT
Co-mediating is a useful option for certain cases and one which is under-utilized. It is not even considered by many mediators, including experienced ones. If used appropriately, thoughtfully and with good preparation, it is an excellent additional tool for the kit we all rely on. This presentation will explore the pros and cons of co-mediating. It will explore how best to decide which cases are appropriate; how to choose co-mediators and how to make the collaboration work. Robyn Weinstein who manages all ADR programs for the United States Eastern District Court will join Ms. Kramer and discuss her use of co-mediation as a training for new mediators. Q & A will be included.
