1.5 CLE credits (1.0 Elimination of Bias, 0.5 Ethics)

An ethical and successful mediation depends on a mediator’s ability to assist parties in dispute resolution while serving as an impartial third party. The effectiveness and quality of a mediation process, however, can be jeopardized in the face of unaddressed and underlying tensions, dynamics, and factors. This program will focus on one such factor—Race. Join us as Professor Alexandra Carter, Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the Mediation Clinic at Columbia Law School, and her exceptional team of law students present an interactive and intriguing analysis of how issues of race and racial bias impact the mediation process and how mediators can best address these issues while maintaining their role as impartial third parties. In a time when discussions about race are at the forefront of the national conversation, this presentation could not come at a more vital time. Professor Carter has spent over a decade training people on how to improve their negotiation and mediation skills and is a world-renowned negotiation trainer for the United Nations. She recently authored the book “Ask for More: 10 Questions to Negotiate Anything.”
