Ethics In Mediation Course


The mediation profession is built on trust, and ethical issues are inherent in any conflict environment.

This module teaches students to identify, in real time, ethical issues that frequently occur in mediation and how to prevent these issues from hijacking the mediation process. Students will learn what types of ethical issues can be expected at each stage of the mediation process and specific strategies to respond appropriately.

EMA experts share real world, practical knowledge with students. This course has been expanded from our previous course (2018 – 2020) to include more activities and more examples of nuanced ethical challenges confronting today’s mediators.

Approved for 3.5 hours CLE, including 3.5 Ethics credits.
