Cosponsored with the Family Law Section of the Virginia State Bar

Mediation is such a free-form discipline compared to trial work that it can be difficult to know where to start in the successful preparation of the case and the client for it. This program is designed to provide practical tips on everything from how to be a good host and good guest in mediation to determining whether a case can benefit from mediation. Gain the benefit of advice from experienced litigation and mediation counsel as well as a leading mediation neutral. You will get nuts-and-bolts suggestions for navigating the pre-mediation process and get insight on preparation of memoranda, conduct of the pre-mediation conference with the neutral, client preparation, as well as management of the mediation itself. This presentation is designed to benefit both new and experienced Virginia attorneys and mediators.
