                                               Program Description

 This interactive program will look at ethics and best practices in mediation. The format utilizes a power point
 and video presentation to portray a hypothetical circuit court case, referred by a judge to a mediator with whom
 the judge attended law school. John Barkai, Ellen Carson, Dan Kunkel, and Susan Park play the parts of the
 parties and the mediator.

 The session starts out with a litigation review of cases involving mediation. Then, participants will see the
 hypothetical case, which is broken into four parts. After each segment there is a group discussion of ethics and
 best practices issues.

 The major areas of litigation involving mediated cases are enforcement of mediated settlement agreements,
 confidentiality, misconduct, duty to mediate, fees and costs, and sanctions. The hypothetical case incorporates
 elements of these subject matter areas.
