Agenda

Seminar Theme:

The theme of the seminar is to demonstrate that mediation techniques are very different from those utilized at trial. The seminar's objective is to discuss and highlight techniques counsel can utilize to advance their client's position through mediation.  The program features Connecticut's leading mediators within the judicial system, former judges, and experienced attorneys.

Mediation Panel

The panel of mediators will focus on their experience and will present views from their vantage points on how to accomplish effective resolutions, including the important do's and don'ts which lead to success. After the panel discussion, there will be an extensive question and answer session, in small break-out groups, directly with the mediators. In addition to the mediator panelists, the seminar will be attended by 12 Superior Court judges, two from each judicial district.  Their presence will give attendees an opportunity to interact with these judges and gain insight into their approach to ADR.

Subjects to be Presented:

  • Picking the “Right” Mediator
  • Trial Skills v. Mediator Skills
  • Case Value:  Use of “Range/Bracket” Techniques
  • Breaking Negotiation Impasse
  • Dealing With Your Client:  ExpectationS
  • Mediator’s Recommendation re: Settlement “Number”?
  • Presentation:  Exhibits, PowerPoint, Video
  • Mediation Statement:  Exchange?
  • Using Mediator to Client’s Advantage

Dean Jennifer Gerarda Brown, Dean of the Quinnipiac Law School, whose speciality is ADR, will give practical insight to resolving cases during mediation. Cindy Robinson, an experienced litigator, will give a presentation on the planning and preparation for mediation from the plaintiff's view. Michael Koskoff, a noted trial attorney, will present "Controlling the Dynamics of Mediation."

Medical School Tour:

Following the seminar, there will be a tour of the Frank H. Netter Medical School - open to all participants.
