Very detailed with case examples.

The advisory and court opinions.

Great overview on the confidentiality provisions as a Rule 31 mediator in real world scenarios.

Speaker seemed very knowledgeable and well prepared. Slides had a few issues at the end of presentation, but that was not a big deal.

The portion re when a mediator can testify and under what limitations was helpful.

With Arbitration and Mediation becoming more preferred and even contracted into in Corporate law (which is what I do) it was interesting to hear the case law and more in depth information on what is required ethically by a mediator and what their behavior should look like. I've seen it adhered to in real experience and drastically strayed from in some cases as well in the past.

Enjoyed the history and practical applications. Well done.

Lots of good information!!

Information that I can use.

More about Advisory Opinions and ethics in mediated cases that are other than family law.
