The benefits of mediation training
In this special episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, produced in partnership with the Mediator Standards Board, we explore the importance of upskilling in mediation in the current market.
Host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Mediator Standards Board deputy chair Stephen Dickinson and treasurer Linda Kochanski to discuss the role of mediation in an evolving professional services marketplace, the extent to which lawyers are upskilling in mediation, the environmental factors driving legal practitioners towards mediation, and how such training offers a competitive edge.
Mr Dickinson and Ms Kochanski also delve into the extent to which accreditation is applicable across the board, how it offers a broader and more holistic approach to daily legal practice and service delivery, the skills and characteristics to be gleaned, arguments for investing in such training, and making time for professional development.
