When a lawsuit is filed, most parties assume they will end up in court to resolve their dispute. However, mediation is becoming an increasingly popular option to settle a wide variety of disputes. With its increase in use and popularity, it’s important to understand what mediation is, how it differs from court, and its potential benefits. 

Join the Massachusetts Bar Association's Civil Litigation Section, Dispute Resolution Section and Young Lawyers Division, along with an esteemed panel of practitioners, mediators and judges, as they take a deeper dive into the finer points of mediation, including:

  • How mediation works
  • Selecting a mediator
  • Preparing for and participating in mediation
  • The hallmarks of a successful mediation
  • Mediation from a judge’s perspective
  • Becoming a mediator

This program was hosted using Zoom.
