Description: Our collective attempt to “flatten the curve” has affected everyone, including mediators and their clients. Mediators must adapt to this new reality and offering mediation online using video-conferencing is one way to do this. This roundtable will cover how to set up and use Zoom to conduct mediations; participants will learn (and share) best practices; we will cover how to inform reluctant parties and counsel of the benefits of mediating online; and we’ll get your questions answered. We hope you will join MWI Mediator Chuck Doran to build your capacity to mediate on Zoom in the age of COVID-19 and beyond.
