About the Book

The original, highly accessible text in Mediation Representation: Advocating as a Problem-Solver highlights critical choices and explores every step of the process, from advising clients on the mediation option through preparing cases for the session to appearing in pre-mediation conferences, sessions, and post-sessions. Students learn how to effectively present opening statements and represent clients in joint sessions. Techniques for overcoming impasses, dealing with emotions, and resolving moneyed disputes are explored, and consideration is given to generating forward movement in the process while uncovering creative solutions.
