Ethical Issues Arising in the Mediation Context

When: June 13, 2023 at 12:15pm - 1:30pm EDT - This event has passed

We bet you’ve never asked whether you face ethical challenges in mediations unlike the challenges you face in other negotiations. Well, lawyers, we’re here to tell you that you do! Do you delegate responsibility for face-to-face negotiation to a “caucus-only” mediator? That might breach your ethical duty to represent your client competently. Do you sign air-tight “confidentiality agreements”? You may be waiving your client’s substantive rights without adequately informing your client. Have you ever had private conversations with opposing counsel or the mediator and actually found yourself collaborating? Maybe you have breached your fiduciary obligations to promote your client’s interests. We’re here to help make your advocacy more thoughtful, ethical, and better. Attend this program and take your practice to the next level. Location: Grand Ballroom
