    Mediation in the Time of Coronavirus - How to Conduct an Effective Zoom Mediation Observations & Tips for Mediators & Representatives

    10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

    CLE webinar through the New York State Bar Association, sponsored by its Dispute Resolution Section

    In this timely, one hour Webinar, Simeon H. Baum, President, Resolve Mediation Services, Inc. (, will lead participants through a nuts and bolts presentation on how to conduct a mediation via Zoom or other alternative to in-person sessions.

    As so many of us are homebound - with courts closed and growing cash shortages impacting businesses - there is no better time for mediators, lawyers and clients to use their time productively by resolving pending disputes. While in-person mediation is currently out of the question, many of us in the field are turning to Zoom or other forms of videoconferencing as a mode for conducting virtual mediations.

    The Program will present an overview of mediation; identify issues and challenges in participating in mediation without the benefit of in-person presence; offer recommendations for offsetting these challenges; and walk participants through the mechanics and components off an online Zoom mediation session.

    This program is geared to both mediators and to representatives of parties participating in a Zoom mediation.
