    B1 Mediators' Set-Up for Lawyers'  Work with Clients

    • Dwight Golann, Suffolk University Law School ;
    • Marjorie Corman Aaron, University of Cincinnati College of Law
    Mediators get the credit, but often the lawyers do the heavy lifting, alone with their clients while the mediator is in the other room.  What moves can a mediator make, what roles can she assume to help a lawyer to work effectively with a difficult client in mediation?  Through a series of interactive scenarios and demonstrations, professors and mediators Marjorie Aaron and Dwight Golann will explore how a mediator can set up lawyers to be successful counselors in mediation.

    E4 Transforming Mediation Theory to Advocacy Practice

    • Robert Lenrow, Cease Fire Mediation ;
    • Laura Kaster, Appropriate Dispute Solutions
    Making money talk has been an important focus for commercial litigators who act as advocates in mediation or negotiate settlements.  But exclusive money focus can blind advocates to the potential benefits of casting their net and their advocacy more widely to include client interests. This is a skills based program for expanding mediation advocacy skills by vividly demonstrating through two participatory negotiations by all audience members how dramatically interest based focus can alter the outcome and success of a mediation, and providing resources for widening the net.

    • Francis Carter, Katz Barron Squitero Faust ;
    • Maura Smith, Delhaize Group ;
    • John Barkett, Shook, Hardy, Bacon LLP
    How important is preparation to the success of mediation? If the goal is a successful mediation, the answer is, "Very." Yet invariably one party, and sometimes more than one party, walks into a mediation unprepared. This program will cover the attributes of good preparation for mediation, whether the amount in controversy is small or large, or the issues in controversy are simple or complex.
