Ethics in Practice: Assessing Recent MEAC Opinions In Context

March 9, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Join the ADR Section on March 9 for a live audio webcast by Christy Foley, Chair of Florida’s Mediator Ethics Advisory Committee (MEAC) and Immediate Past Section Chair Chris Magee. This 60-minute ethics webinar will update attendees on recent ethics opinions and discuss practical problems presented for mediators and advocates under scenarios presented to MEAC. Hear the latest updates on recent ethics opinions. Learn ways to address practical problems raised by various ethical scenarios and how to resolve or avoid ethical dilemmas.
• If a mediator cannot use the Ethics Rule as a shield to prevent reporting of attendance at mediation, how should a mediator ethically deal with competing requests from both sides to report/not report a party’s failure to attend?
• How should a mediator deal with billing for payment in the awkward situation of a unilateral cancellation by one party when the remaining party is prepared to proceed?
• What is an ethical billing policy? Do any ethics rules particularly apply in this context?
• What ethics rules apply to conflicts of interest and what must the mediator disclose?
