Ethics Issues in Mediation


Hosted by Practical Law

Recorded on February 8, 2018

Ethical issues can trip up even the most seasoned participants in mediation. Confidentiality is a particularly challenging aspect of mediation, and can pose any number of different and nuanced challenges. Listen to the International Institute on Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR), and Jenner & Block, as mediation experts Richard Ziegler, Noah Hanft, and Bernadette Miragliotta explore the contours of ethics in mediation.

The panel will address hypothetical mediation circumstances that illustrate multiple ethical issues with a particular emphasis on confidentiality questions - How far can a mediator go in facilitating constructive discussions between the parties when the mediator has committed to keep one side’s objectives confidential from the other? When can a party exploit an opposing party’s misconduct during the mediation? Can a mediator be compelled to testify about a party’s mediation positions?
