Mediation Committee (Lead)


The Covid-19 pandemic has propelled mediators and parties, ready or not, into the virtual word. This shift in practice has highlighted comparative advantages of online mediation and also exposed its limits. This session will explore the psychology of mediation at a distance and consider how mediators and mediation counsel are adapting to the digital world.
