Improved Negotiation, Mediation & Advocacy Skills Presented by Chicago Bar Association (CBA)
This intensive, two and a half day workshop (8:30 am -5:30 pm Wednesday and Thursday, 8:30 am - 12: 00 pm on Friday) on negotiation and mediation is for one who wants to improve his/her negotiation, mediation and advocacy skills. The workshop is intended for those with experience in negotiation and mediation.
The workshop will present cutting-edge strategies for successful negotiation and advocacy and will provide insight on how to mediate difficult disputes. The presenters will discuss methods to resolve issues on their merits rather than through a haggling process. They will highlight strategies to employ which will allow you to be fair while negotiating, but will prevent you from being taken advantage of because of your fairness.
A certificate of completion will be issued by the Chicago Bar Association which will qualify participants to act as an arbitrator in the Circuit Court of Cook County Commercial Section, Mandatory Arbitration Program. The program also satisfies the training requirement necessary to join the CBA Mediation Program.
