Course – Best Practices in Family Law Mediation

by | Oct 17, 2022 | Insights, News & Events

It’s National Mediation Week and a great time to share my recent MCLE recording with colleagues Katie Burke and Christine Whalen – we could have gone on for hours.

The American Bar Association recognizes the third week in October as Mediation Week to educate the public about mediation. During Mediation Week, the ABA encourages all to recognize the importance of the work of neutrals, advocates, and policymakers and celebrate the strides we have made in institutionalizing mediation as a dispute resolution process.
