Best Practices for Mediation & Settlement
Published by New York State Trial Lawyers Association



Summary
In this workshop seminar extending over two sessions, attendees will be given the opportunity to hear from judges/mediators, plaintiff and defense counsel all having extensive experience and success with mediation. This program, presented for the third year, is now expanded and includes as special moderator Daniel Weitz, who working for New York State Court System disseminates best ADR practices throughout our court system as well as being a consummate professor on the subject at two law schools. Learn the principles of valuating a case, timing and approach to resolution, judge/mediator assessment and responsibility, plaintiff experience and strategy, and defense perspective. The curriculum will be strong, the experience and insight to be gained irreplaceable. In addition, the attendees will be presented with hypothetical cases having liability and damage issues and will be divided into groups of 3 to play the roles of plaintiff, defendant and mediator/judge respectively. The mediator should help plaintiff and defense counsel communicate and negotiate in the hopes of finding a mutually agreeable solution. The exercise will be guided by the distinguished panel who will critique and highlight the strengths of each side. Look forward to an enjoyable and informative evening on how to bring your client’s case to a successful conclusion!
