This Mediation Advocacy course is designed for attorneys who would like to expand their range of professional services to include effectively representing clients in mediation. Mediation Advocacy differs from traditional litigation advocacy and the attorney of today needs to master the skills to help their clients win at mediation.
We build on your education and experience as an attorney and help you expand your skills in a new direction, one that will add value for your clients and your legal practice. This course redefines what it means to obtain a successful outcome for your client while providing the best practices on how to represent your client’s interests in the mediation room.
While lawyers roles may differ from country to country, this course is designed to develop mediation advocacy skills for all lawyers, regardless of their country or specialty areas of practice.
Consider the following…
For most corporate clients, their lawsuits never make it to court. Parties negotiate settlements to avoid the costly process of litigation and the risk of negative results, including bad publicity.
For many individual clients, the expense associated with pursuing a dispute through the legal system is prohibitive and time-consuming. They prefer an alternative process that saves time and money and allows the possibility of restoring broken relationships. When presented a choice, most individuals opt for a process that enables them to participate fully in making decisions.
The solution in both settings is to prioritize dispute resolution through mediation before exhausting the traditional litigation process.
Understanding how to effectively navigate the mediation process … and possessing the skills necessary to successfully represent your client in the mediation room, is no longer an option. It is essential knowledge for practicing attorneys.
…and much more.
