Out on the Law Practice Frontier: Ethical Issues Associated with Attorney Mediation and Facilitation

The VBA's Administrative Law Section is sponsoring this FREE CLE program, providing 1 MCLE Credit hour (1.0 Ethics), on Thursday, October 29, at 4 p.m.

When lawyers step out of their traditional roles as advocates, and mediate disputes between private parties or facilitate consensus building in public policy settings, challenging ethical questions come up, including:

  • Are lawyer-mediators practicing law when they mediate?
  • Can a lawyer-mediator be an advocate for a settlement once a settlement is achieved? and
  • How do confidentiality considerations play out in this setting?

 

Mark E. Rubin, Esq., (former Counsel to Governor Timothy Kaine, and now Executive Director of VCU's Virginia Center for Consensus Building), and Leslie A.T. Haley, Esq., (former VSB Senior Assistant Ethics Counsel, now in private practice) will discuss these and other thought-provoking ethical issues associated with this emerging area of law practice.
