    C9 Women in ADR : Two Generations Speak

    • Carol Cope, JAMS ;
    • Mercedes Bach, JAMS ;
    • Caroline A. Soret ;
    • Alexandra Bach Lago
    Today’s women law students learn the fundamentals of ADR theory and procedure in the classroom. Their views on the process and its place in the practice of law are very different from those of their lawyer mothers, women who pioneered ADR over the past 20 years. Our panelists are two mothers and daughters who engage in ADR. The mothers, the Hon. Mercedes Bach, a former circuit judge, and Carol Soret Cope, a former litigator who has practiced more than 20 years in ADR, are both affiliated with JAMS, The Resolution Experts in the Miami office. The daughters: Caroline A. Soret, Geico Staff Counsel at the law offices of Timothy W. Harrison, and Alexandra Bach Lago, who practices law in Miami.

    During this networking program we will discuss the use of mediation screening protocols including DOVE, MASIC, RBRS-r and those offered by the Supreme Court of Michigan. This is a facilitated discussion, not a panel presentation. We encourage you to join us and share your thoughts, experiences and concerns.  We will discuss what to do, what not to do and how to be better prepared to handle these issues throughout the mediation process.
