Evan Spelfogel, Member of the Firm, serves as Program Co-Chair of this three-day commercial mediation training course sponsored by the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) Dispute Resolution Section and Fordham University School of Law.

The course will present a thorough examination of mediation principles and techniques. The program faculty will analyze the structure of a typical mediation, highlight ethical issues that may arise in mediation, and explore solutions for generating movement and overcoming impasse.

Sessions will explore differences between facilitative and evaluative or directive approaches in mediation, from both practical and ethical perspectives, and will discuss advantages and disadvantages of these styles. The instructors will focus on experiential learning through role plays and dialogue to help prepare you for the real world of commercial mediation.
