Double-Dipping

by Geoff Sharp

From the blog mediator blah...blah...

Geoff Sharp

It's always a good week when someone, somewhere asks how come judges can leave the bench for retirement at the mediation table?

And it's especially good if you have often wondered out loud (How wrong can you get? and Great on paper, crap at the table) what skills used for judging can possibly complement those needed for mediation.

One of the best think pieces on this is still the 2005 Judicial Ethics and Judicial Settlement Practices: Time for Two Strangers to Meet

But hey, you can't argue with the market - it's the mediators who are connected and have authority in their niche who will live long and prosper
