Coming To Terms: Preparing for Mediation and Arbitration 2022

Product ID: CA3341M
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

What’s the alternative?

The COVID-19 pandemic created a massive backlog of civil and criminal cases on dockets in Wisconsin and around the country. It also led to an increase in business disputes and employment law matters, adding to the preexisting pileup of cases.1 Although courts have resumed operations, the backlog continues to cripple dockets state and nationwide.

Alternative dispute resolution is often faster than litigation, making arbitration or mediation appealing to clients who don’t want to wait for a trial. In fact, the American Bar Association 2 and the American Arbitration Association encouraged practitioners to opt for arbitration during the pandemic so civil cases wouldn’t languish in courts.3

Coming to Terms: Preparing for Mediation and Arbitration will get you up to speed on everything you need to know about alternative dispute resolution. Experienced arbitrators and mediators will guide you on:

  • The pros and cons to consider before opting for mediation or arbitration
  • Helpful ADR strategies and techniques
  • What is and isn’t allowed in alternative dispute resolution
  • The differences between in-person and virtual processes
  • Best practices for pre-mediation submissions
