Join two experts in online dispute resolution as they provide guidance and best practices to help you understand the fine points of virtual mediation and arbitration.

Mediation and arbitration will play an increasingly significant role in many litigation practices as court systems struggle to address historic backlogs after the quarantine and as lawyers grapple with an increasing caseload from COVID-19 related matters. Even professionals who frequently use mediation and/or arbitration, may be wondering how they translate to the virtual environment. Two experts on online dispute resolution will provide guidance and best practices to help you understand the fine points of virtual mediation and arbitration. Proficiency in this area will help to both manage your caseload and provide the best possible service to your clients. In this program, participants will learn:

What to expect from online mediation:

  • How the structure of a virtual dispute resolution proceeding may differ from an in-person one
  • How to prepare your clients and yourself for the online experience
  • What to ask your mediator or arbitrator to ensure that the dispute resolution process is secure, private and confidential
