Preparing Clients for Mediation in Personal Injury for Lawyers (PMP)

Mediation is becoming increasingly important to the practice of law, as crucial to the conduct of your case as any other step in the litigation process. Not only can mediation save time and money for your client, it's one of the best methods for lawyers to encourage settlement, as is their duty under the new BC Code of Professional Conduct. Preparation is key to a successful mediation and this course will take you through the A to Z of preparing for a personal injury mediation. You will emerge with a detailed understanding of the mediation preparation process and a checklist to help you with every case.

If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I would spend six sharpening my axe. “  Abraham Lincoln

You apply these principles to your trial preparation, why not prepare for mediation in the same way? We can help you hone your mediation preparation for superior results for your clients!
