Description: NEWBIE LITIGATOR SCHOOL - PART I 2021  Series
Episode #2: ADR & Settlement
August 17, 2021 at 2:00 PM CST
Many cases are litigated outside of the court system through the use of alternative dispute resolution methods such as arbitration, and the vast majority of cases settle before they reach trial, either as a result of the parties’ efforts or with the help of a mediator. This webinar covers the basics of arbitration and mediation, presenting an effective case to a neutral third party, and negotiating and documenting a successful settlement, either directly or with a mediator’s assistance.
This webinar is delivered in Plain English, understandable to you even if you do not have a background in the subject. It brings you into an engaging, even sometimes humorous, conversation designed to entertain as it teaches. And, it is specifically designed to be viewed as a stand-alone webinar, meaning that you do not have to view the other webinars in the series to get a lot out of it.
