Crafting the Effective Mediation Summary: A Workshop
Who has seen more mediation summaries than a seasoned mediator? Howard R. Marsee and Richard Lord, two longtime Upchurch Watson White & Max mediators, share their observations and advice about preparing a summary.
Their goal-focused approach will refine the summary process, based first on the reason it's needed. Expect much discussion of the five W's that must always be satisfied in the process and a conclusion that answers the questions frequently asked by those who are experienced in preparing and submitting mediation summaries.
This continuing legal education Webinar, scheduled for noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, will be eligible for 1.0 hours of CLE, pending with The Florida Bar. The program is designed for attorneys who represent parties in mediation. Register now
