ABA Mediation Convening and Intake Best Practices Panel
Conna Weiner’s panel proposal to discuss the topic: “Mediation Convening and Intake Best Practices: What Can and Should Mediators and ADR Providers Do When an agreement to Mediate Does not (yet) Exist?” was accepted for the ABA Section on Dispute Resolution Annual Meeting and took place on April 17, 2015. Conna’s panelists included her fellow co-presenter, Nancy Greenwald, the Chief Operating Officer of JAMS, Kimberly Taylor, and Professor Kristen Blankley of the University of Nebraska Law School. We discussed confidentiality, best practices for convening and information collection and other issues. Our extensive materials on the subject, including sample forms, are available at the Articles & Resources page of this website.
