Tools, Tips and Tactics for Safe & Ethical Online Mediation

Description

Online mediation became the safer alternative for dispute resolution during COVID-19 social distancing times, and the convenience for both mediators and their clients has made it a continuing and popular practice still. But mediating online can lead to issues of privacy and confidentiality when the clients’ environment is out of the mediator’s control.

  • Online mediation in the time of Coronavirus 
  • Understanding the tools, platforms and key features for mediating safely 
  • Developing mediation rapport through technology
  • Maintaining confidentiality with technology
  • Recording tools, smartphones, and other off-screen distractions
  • Exploring creative outcomes and solutions remotely

  • ABA Model Rule 1.4 Communications
  • ABA Model Rule 1.6 Confidentiality of Information

Presented by Todd C. Scott, VP Risk Management of Risk Management for Minnesota Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company and Kristi Paulson, Esq. of Kristi Paulson Law.
