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

    10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

    In this timely, one hour Webinar, experienced mediators Simeon H. Baum (, Henry M. Quillian III, of Taylor & English and Bay Mediation & Arbitration Services, and Alexander J. Zimmer 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.
