This interactive program will look at ethics and best practices in mediation. The format utilizes a power point and video presentation to portray a hypothetical circuit court case, referred by a judge to a mediation with whom the judge attended law school. John Barkai, Ellen Carson, Dan Kunkel, and Susan Park play the parts of the parties and the mediator.
The session starts out with a litigation review of cases involving mediation. Then, participants will see the hypothetical case, which is broken into four parts. After each segment there is a group discussion of ethics and best practices issues.
The major areas of litigation involving mediated cases are enforcement of mediated settlement agreements, confidentiality, misconduct, duty to mediate, fees and costs, and sanctions. The hypothetical case incorporates elements of these subject matter areas.

*Rule 22(c), Rules of the Supreme Court of the State of Hawaii, allows you to carry over 3 MCPE credits to the next year.
