Featuring: Jeff Kichaven, Esq. and Lee Jay Berman “‹
Moderated by: Richard Huver, Esq.
Two prominent California mediators represent the opposing positions in the debate surrounding California Law Revision Commission’s Study K-402, entitled “Relationship Between Mediation Confidentiality and Attorney Malpractice and Other Misconduct.” Come hear them debate the public policy arguments driving this proposed reform and its implications, including the following: Would this exception generate more litigation, eroding the purpose and value of mediation? Are lawyers using mediation confidentiality to shield their malpractice? Will mediation participants feel free to speak frankly in mediation if they know their communications can be used against them? How will this reform impact mediation? And much more.
