Description:

This program has been cancelled.

At a time when it can sometimes take months to have a motion heard or a year to get a trial date, more and more people are turning to alternative ways to resolve their family law cases.

At this CLE, a distinguished panel of ADR providers and attorneys will discuss four alternatives to costly, time-consuming litigation: (1) conciliation; (2) mediation; (3) arbitration; and (4) parent coordination. 

After this seminar, attendees will know how to prepare their clients for mediation, arbitration, conciliation and parent coordination. The panelists will define and distinguish each of these forms of ADR, will discuss the pros and cons of each, and will give tips on how lawyers should prepare their clients and themselves to engage in each of these forms of ADR.

Specific Topics:

I. Conciliation
II. Mediation
III. Arbitration
IV. Parent Coordination
