4 Benefits Of Being A Child Of Divorce (4/15/16)
Vicki Shemin
As a child of divorce, a divorced mother of two, and a long-practicing divorce lawyer/therapist, divorce is not exactly something I would advocate for improving a child’s mental health.

Richard Birke
How Likely Am I to Win? Risk, Uncertainty & the Turkey Illusion (9/18/15)
Richard Birke
When parties are faced with an attractive settlement offer, they frequently wish to compare the offer to what they might get at trial, which is the product of the odds of winning times the value of the verdict or award. Naturally, they ask their lawyer “how likely am I to win?”

Michael A. Zeytoonian
Transforming Disputes into Transactions via Collaborative Law (8/28/15)
Michael A. Zeytoonian
When I work with people to help them resolve their disputes, I often find that they are very preoccupied with finding fault and placing blame for what has happened to trigger the dispute. We spend a lot of our energies, time and emotion – clients and lawyers alike – looking backward at what happened and seeing who we can hold liable.

The Effects of Climate Change Are All Local: Here's What You Can Do to Help Manage the Risks (8/14/15)
Larry Susskind
We've spent far too much time thinking about the global causes of climate change, and not nearly enough worrying about the local impacts that climate change is already having on coastal communities. This article discusses how we involved communities in a collaborative discussion about climate change.

Richard Barbieri
The Future of Mediation: Changing the Default of Fault (7/21/15)
Richard Barbieri
Will the future of mediation be, as Woody Allen remarked, “much like the present, only longer”? Given what we know about human nature, systems, and the resistance of each to change, that’s perhaps the safest prediction. But it’s also a less than hopeful prognosis, because mediation has much to offer the future, far more than it has achieved at present.

What is Integrative Law? The Emergence of a New Legal System (7/02/15)
J. Kim Wright
The author describes the pillars that have developed and appear to be the foundation of the Integrative Law movement and the emergence of a new legal system.

Laura Athens
Overcoming Reluctance to Engage in Mediation (6/11/15)
Laura Athens
Many attorneys know and appreciate the benefits of mediation.  Those who are familiar with the benefits of mediation readily propose and eagerly participate in it.  However, should you encounter any resistance, how can it be addressed?

Dick Price
Considering Reconciling? (4/10/15)
Dick Price
This is kind of a chicken and egg situation. Which came first, the possibility of reconciliation or choosing to use the Collaborative process?

Donal O’Reardon
The Transpersonal is the Future of Mediation (2/04/15)
Donal O’Reardon
The future of mediation and conflict resolution is the transpersonal. “Transpersonal” means a view of the person as more than their conscious mind.

Joe Markowitz
Selma (1/09/15)
Joe Markowitz
Was there ever an opportunity for peaceful resolution of this civil rights conflict? We see President Johnson acting at times a little bit like a mediator between King and Governor Wallace, but no real attempt was made at creating a dialogue that could resolve the dispute.

Brad Heckman
Police Academy IX: This Time It’s Interpersonal (12/19/14)
Brad Heckman
The New York Peace Institute recently conducted a mediation training for the NYPD. They have kindly shared how the training went, tips and tricks for training, and some insights into the cross-over between police and mediation.

Bruce Provda
6 Reasons You Need a Prenup (12/19/14)
Bruce Provda
Many divorces happen because of financial problems. A prenup forces both parties to look at — and reveal — their financial picture. An open discussion about finance may help to build a firm foundation for marriage.

The Art and Science of Mediation: How the Principles of Commitment/Consistency and Expectation May be Applied to Mediation to Help Break Party Impasse - Part One (11/14/14)
Jennifer Winestone
This article provides a review of two psychological concepts derived from Robert Cialdini's "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion" and Dan Ariely's "Predictably Irrational" and considers their practical and ethical implications as applied to mediation.

Erica Bristol
Trade Secret Mediation: Negotiating Beyond the Distrust (10/21/14)
Erica Bristol
Trade secret litigation often involves deep levels of distrust, suspicion, and anger on the part of parties and counsel. To avoid trial, the plaintiff must negotiate with the thief, adding insult to injury. The defendant may express outrage at being accused of theft, and suspect the litigation is merely a “fishing expedition” to uncover the defendant’s own trade secrets. How then can the parties overcome these issues and reach agreement during mediation? This article provides counsel with information and suggestions for successfully mediating trade secret disputes.

Recognition of International Arbitration in Ukraine in Figures (10/13/14)
Konstantin Pilikov
Arbitration practitioners often put Ukraine below the average ranking of countries in terms of recognition of arbitration. Ukraine’s image of a not entirely arbitration-friendly jurisdiction is “promoted” with common thought about problematicenforcement of arbitral awards in Ukraine. However, in recent years Ukrainian legal system demonstrated significant progress in adherence to the arbitration-friendly approach. That progress had been measured during the study resulted in the research paper “Ukraine. Arbitration-friendly jurisdiction: statistical report, 2011-2012”

Jeanette Bicknell
Conflict in Start-ups (10/03/14)
Jeanette Bicknell
From one perspective, conflict in a start-up should not be different from conflict in any other similarly sized organization. And to be sure, some of the same factors that cause conflict in any organization – whether it is a family business or a partnership or a non-profit – can contribute to conflict in a start-up. Yet start-ups also have some unique challenges, and I’ve seen some rather bad advice targeted to them.

Ian MacDuff
On Collaboration (9/26/14)
Ian MacDuff
Many companies and their executives have embraced the imperative of sustainability, but it’s that step into a collaborative approach that still seems too hard.

Cinnie Noble
The Last Word (9/05/14)
Cinnie Noble
When we are in an interpersonal conflict we may find ourselves reacting when the other person tries to have or succeeds at getting the last word. Or, we may be the one who is trying or succeeds in doing so. According to one source, the definition of the phrase the last word includes: “the last thing said in an argument”; “information that everyone considers to be the best”; “the right to make a decision that everyone must obey”; and “the newest and best type of something”.

Dale Ordas
Rethinking Negotiation Strategy (9/02/14)
Dale Ordas
Too frequently, negotiations are fruitless due to inadequate preparation. Rethinking Negotiation Strategy sets forth critical areas that should be part of the preparation for negotiation. In each segment there are references, which provide for a more in depth exploration of these indispensable tools for the successful negotiator.

MED-ARB: The Best of Both Worlds or Just A Limited ADR Option? (Part Two) (8/22/14)
Mark Baril
Med-arb is the melding of two well-established processes for conflict resolution into one hybrid process. Mediation and Arbitration are used in conjunction with one another and, in the truest form of med-arb, the same third-party neutral plays the role of both mediator and arbitrator. In this paper, the term med-arb refers to this pure form that uses the same neutral, and is distinct from the common process where different neutrals are used in a mediation phase and an arbitration phase.

Cynthia Alkon
“Tell her Capt. Johnson is sorry and he apologizes.” (8/15/14)
Cynthia Alkon
Five days ago, an unarmed eighteen year old, Michael Brown, was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. As is all too commonly the situation, Mr. Brown was African American and the police officer who did the shooting (as with most of the police in Ferguson) was white. An investigation is on-going, but the reports of what happened are disturbing enough that there have been protests since Mr. Brown’s death.

John Sturrock
Collaborative Scotland (6/06/14)
John Sturrock
Scotland is having a referendum on its constitutional future. As I write this, it is only a few months until we vote. Whatever the outcome in September’s referendum about independence for Scotland, in this country we will all need to work hard to ensure that we can live well together after the referendum.

Michael A. Zeytoonian
Dispute Resolution Options (5/23/14)
Michael A. Zeytoonian
Most people think that when they get into a legal dispute, they have to file a lawsuit. They retain a lawyer, often a litigator, and start an expensive, time-consuming process called litigation. “I’ll sue.” “I’ll take you to court.” It’s what we are taught and reared on, what we see in movies and on TV and what people talk about here in America, the world’s most litigious society. - See more at: http://www.disputeresolutioncounsel.com/2014/05/dispute-resolution-options/#sthash.IQ6GFRXc.dpuf
