How to Get the Best Experience from Online Mediation
On September 17, 2020, we held a webinar, How to Get the Best Experience from Online Mediation. Many mediators and attorneys in our state had little experience with online dispute resolution prior to the COVID-19 lockdowns that began in March 2020. Overnight, online communication platforms became a preferred means of conducting meetings, hearings, depositions, and mediations.

For those practitioners whose in-person mediations and meetings are being canceled and postponed due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus, ONLINE MEDIATION provides an easily implemented solution. By conducting mediations and hearings through an online video-conferencing platform, mediators and other neutrals can continue to conduct business as usual while maintaining the physical distance warranted under current conditions.
Attorney Susan Guthrie, who has a fully online mediation and coaching practice herself, presented a program of practical and easily implemented advice on the issues and considerations that practitioners must take into account when adding an online platform to their practice. Susan highlighted areas of concern and reviewed options for how to address them as well as how to select and implement the online platform, and best practices for conducting the mediation sessions.
