This program will address a number of ethics issues that can arise in mediation and settlement negotiations. With a specific focus on confidentiality, conflicts of interest and related issues, the program will discuss ethics questions from the point of view of the mediator, the outside lawyer, and even the client. The program will close with a brief discussion about how to research ethics issues and how to get help from an ethics committee of lawyers, or mediators, when needed.
