On Nov. 14 and Dec. 5, Professors Sternlight and Nussbaum will speak during a State Bar of Nevada continuing legal education program titled "Hot Topics in Mediation and Judicial Settlement."
Professor Sternlight will talk on "Why Mediators Should Care About the Psychology of Ethics," and Professor Nussbaum will present "Is Mum Always the Word? - What Mediators Should Know About Mediation Confidentiality."
Presented by the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section, the program will feature an overview of facilitative and evaluative mediation and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each. The event will also address when discussions in mediation are confidential and privileged, the role that psychology plays in avoiding ethical missteps, and where to look for mediators.
