Will Your Mediation Stay Confidential?

At both their August and October 2015 meetings, the California Law Revision Commission voted to recommend legislation removing our current mediation confidentiality protections whenever professional misconduct is alleged against a participating lawyer advocate. Nearly all their recommendations become law.

Mediation confidentiality has generated a great deal of controversy and discussion recently, particularly as it applies to malpractice and professional misconduct. Ron Kelly, a leading expert on California's mediation confidentiality laws, strongly believes mediators need to take an active role in this discussion.

In his workshop, Ron will discuss the pending weakening of protections, and explain how this will impact your current practice and the field.

Ron's mediation clinic is a must for mediators who care about confidentiality or want to have a better understanding of the controversy.
