As the cost of litigation rises and the court dockets overflow, Alternative Dispute Resolution is getting increasing attention in the legal community. But what is mediation? What is the role of the mediator? How do mediators, attorneys and represented parties interact at the mediation table? This seminar provides an introduction to the basic mediation skills and process. Join representatives from the Center for Conflict Resolution who will guide participants through the facilitative model of mediation and give insight into this process from the mediator's seat. The Center for Conflict Resolution was founded in 1979 by members of the Young Lawyer's Section of the Chicago Bar Association. In addition to the Mortgage Foreclosure Mediation Program, CCR mediates close to 2,000 cases per year referred from Cook County Courts and other sources throughout Chicago.

Robert (Rocky) Perkovich, Mediator and Arbitrator
Pari Karim, Training Director, CCR
