Mediation is a type of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). ADR emcompasses a variety of processes that are used to resolve conflicts between multiple parties, typically without the involvement of the formal court system. There are times, however, where courts will mandate mediation.
Mediation is a relatively informal process that allows the parties an opportunity to work together to reach an agreement. In a mediation, the disputing parties meet with an impartial third party to solve their disagreement. While the mediator works to help the parties reach a conclusion, the mediator does not make the final decision. Instead, the mediator assists the parties in coming to an agreement on their own. Mediation is party-centered and tends to involve negotiation to reach an agreement suitable to both parties. Mediation is often seen as a cost-effective alternative to litigation, and the mediation process tends to unfold much more quickly than actions in the formal court system.
Who Should Take CLE Courses in Mediation?
Anyone involved in the mediation or ADR process could benefit from a mediation CLE course. Lawyers who aren’t actively involved in mediation may want to learn how they can make better use of this process. Mediated issues tend to be resolved much more quickly than litigated cases, giving lawyers the ability to take on additional clients. Additionally, clients who resolve their cases through mediation are often more satisfied than those who must face the court system. Even nonattorneys working in mediation could gain value in better understanding the legal ins and outs of their industry. At just $49 per credit, Quimbee offers some of the most affordable mediation CLE courses available!
