Join the Massachusetts Bar Association for a mock hearing in which the process of mediation is the subject of the argument. Appearing before a judge, two attorneys will debate the benefits and flaws in mediation and conciliation. Panelists will act out the roles of the judge, attorneys, husband, wife, conciliator and mediator in a family law matter.

Held in open session, the presentation will portray the result of the parties’ decision to mediate as an alternative to continuing with a trial.

Panelists will argue the benefits and pitfalls of mediation in a fun and informative way.
