FLPA Lunchtime Webinar - Mediating in a pandemic
Does the online response represent a new way for family law practitioners?
COVID-19 changed many aspects of what we as family lawyers and practitioners do. We had to adapt. One example was how we changed how we mediate. Some of us scrambled to understand how to connect, where to place the camera and how to get more than one person in an online room. For others it represented an easier way and perhaps an earlier transition into the future of family law and alternative dispute resolution.
Join Mediator, Arbitrator and Barrister Bruce Thiele on Thursday 23 July 2020 from 12.30pm to discuss how his mediation practice adapted to COVID-19. He will share his learnings about video conferencing generally. Bruce will offer practical guidance and support about Zoom mediations and other online platforms, weighing up the advantages and disadvantages. He will discuss building rapport in an online world and managing the usual client expectations and concerns. He will share his insights about the future of mediation online.
12.30 pm, Thursday 23 July 2020 via webinar.
