In European countries, 80% of court disputes are resolved without trial. In the United States, mediation is an unconditional attribute of the legal system. In Ukraine, mediation is gradually becoming an increasingly visible and necessary tool in legal practice.
Mediation often becomes the only effective way to resolve disputes. And it is the involvement of a mediator’s lawyers that can help resolve the dispute quickly and satisfy the interests of both parties. It is important that, unlike a formal trial, the parties reach an agreement on their own during the mediation.
On June 6-7, 2019, the Tomorrow’s Lawyer Program, with the support of the US Embassy in Ukraine, will hold a two-day intermodular training for 24 lawyers of the third hundred on the topic “Mediation. Basic skills. The role of a lawyer during mediation.”
The training will be conducted by experienced mediators and coaches Roman Koval and Alyona Horova. The participants of the training were selected by a special commission based on the submitted questionnaires.
The training will focus on basic topics covered by the mediation process:
- approaches to conflict resolution;
- the role of the lawyer during mediation;
- the difference between positions and interests in the mediation process;
- strategy of working with prejudices during mediation;
- principles of mediation and ethics of the mediator.
