Diversity Discussion: Elimination of Bias in Alternative Dispute Resolution
Tuesday, June 21, 2022 - 12:00 PM Central

  • JAMS is steadfast in pursuing increased diversity among ADR practitioners. We recognize the benefits of recruiting and retaining the most qualified ADR professionals inclusive of varied ethnicity, race, gender, religion and sexual orientation. This diverse panel of retired judges will explore implicit bias and offer a resource for testing your own biases—the Implicit Association Test (IAT)—before moving on to a discussion of the Batson standard, including legal challenges based on the standard in ADR proceedings. Attendees will learn about what JAMS is doing to promote diversity, equity and inclusion goals in ADR and how they can help.

Effective Advocacy in Employment Mediation
Wednesday, June 22, 2022 - 12:00 PM Central

  • The COVID-19 pandemic brought about many changes in the world of work.  It also impacted the way we practice law and alternative dispute resolution (ADR).  Even so, employment mediations were always different from purely commercial matters.  Jobs touch on self-image and self-worth, and their loss can trigger cascading effects on health, housing, and relationships with family members.

Preparing for Settlement Right from the Start
Thursday, June 23, 2022 - 12:00 PM Central

  • In the US, most civil litigation does not proceed to trial.  Knowing settlement may very well be in the cards, how can lawyers prepare their cases and their clients for mediation day? In this webinar, panelists will discuss how attorneys can best position their clients for success from the outset.  Preparation for mediation, managing client expectations and even whether parties use opening statements in mediation, are all aspects of the process that are prime issues for resolution long before mediation day.
