Please note that this is an estimate of the total hours of CPD that are being offered. Upon the conclusion of the meeting, an assessment will be made as to exactly how many hours will be approved.

Many of us know the benefits of mediation. Chief amongst them are the ability to resolve matters inexpensively, amicably, and privately. However, not all mediations go smoothly. Mediations can be fraught with practical, strategic, interpersonal, and ethical issues.

Kimberly Jakeman and Rose Keith of Harper Grey LLP will speak to the CBA Young Lawyers about ethical and practical issues that arise in the context of mediation, as they relate to clients, opposing counsel, opposing parties, and the mediator. They will consider issues such as unconscious bias and the need for independent legal advice, while sharing some of their own experiences as counsel and mediators. 

Lunch will be provided by Harper Grey LLP. We anticipate that the talk will be eligible for 1.0 hours of CPD credits, 0.5 of which will relate to ethics.
