Tips For More Effective Mediation

Below is a link to a very interesting article published online by the American Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section by Jeffrey Boykin who often represents clients in mediation. He is a business and transactional litigator in Raleigh. His co-author is Diana Mercer, co-chair of the ABA DRS Practice Development Committee with an ADR practice in Los Angeles.

The article lists 18 tips that they believe help define effective mediators. I agree with the points they make; it is very sensible advice for anyone considering mediation. (You must be an ABA member or have an ABA account to read the article online.)
