Stumbling Block or Stepping Stone: Ethics in Mediation
Duration: 65 minutes
Adriana Doyle, a family attorney and mediator, once wrote: “The only difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is the way in which we use them.” All successful mediators excel by taking just that approach: for every stumbling block that appears, the mediator will reposition it, shifting and turning until the step stone appears. In all that shifting and turning, though, mediators—and attorney mediators in particular—must be ever mindful of the ethical rules and guidelines. In this program, nationally acclaimed mediators Dan Weitz, Maria Volpe and Dan Kolb delve into the complex ethical dilemmas mediators face. From conflicts of interest to discovering misconduct to understanding the impact of cultural differences on the mediation process, the panel offer practical guidance to attorney mediators, including how and when an attorney mediator must withdraw from the mediation process.
