TOPIC: "Effective Advocacy in Child Protection Mediation"
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Attorneys representing clients in child protection mediation face a multitude of challenges, including the reality that they have moral and ethical responsibilities beyond those owed to their client. Through instruction, interactive dialogue and sharing experiences, we will explore some of the challenges attorneys have encountered and are likely to encounter in child protection mediation. Participants will learn strategies to address those challenges and to reconcile the attorney's obligations to the client, the minor, other participants, the court during, and society during the mediation process

SPEAKER(S): Suzanna C. Schrader and Susan M. Storcel
