“Ethical Challenges for Mediators”

Ethical Chalenges as in OZRIMA Workshop:

An Exploration of Ethical Challenges faced by Mediators and the responsibilities they face. 

Madeleine B. Bass, Esq.   

Ethical challenges arise from many sources. 

Lawyers serving as third-party neutrals are subject to ARTICLE V. RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT and may be subject to court rules or other law.  
Lawyer-neutrals may also be subject to various codes of ethics, such as the Code of Ethics for Arbitration in Commercial Disputes prepared by a joint committee of the American Bar Association and the American Arbitration Association or the Model Standards of Conduct for Mediators jointly prepared by the American Bar Association, the American Arbitration Association and the Society of Professionals in Dispute Resolution(now ACR).  The same may be true for other Professionals. 

The Rules do not, however, exhaust the moral and ethical considerations that should inform a practitioner, for no worthwhile human activity can be completely defined by legal rules. The Rules simply provide a framework for ethical practice.* 

Join us for this wide ranging discussion may prove to be provocative as well as informative and almost certainly very popular.
