NAM Academy Presents: Inside the Mind of a Mediator – Avoiding Impasse and Maximizing Outcomes in Mediation

CLE Events | Webinar Date: June 6, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. ET

New York, NY (May 20, 2022) – NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), one of the nation's leading providers of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services, is pleased to announce the creation of the NAM Academy, offering live-streamed Continuing Legal Education programs, podcasts and informational webcasts. Join us for the Academy's inaugural CLE, Inside the Mind of a Mediator: Avoiding Impasse and Maximizing Outcomes in Mediation. This complimentary 60-minute CLE program will be presented by Hon. John P. DiBlasi (Ret.) and Richard P. Byrne, Esq. and will be live-streamed on Monday, June 6th at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Although mediation resolves most disputes, some mediations end in impasse. Such disappointments can usually be avoided, and positive resolutions achieved, when advocates are armed with knowledge of common mediation pitfalls and develop negotiation skills that can enhance mediation outcomes.

Join two of NAM's highly regarded neutrals, Judge DiBlasi and Mr. Byrne, and learn how appropriate preparation, smart brief-craft, and thoughtful strategies during the mediation session — focused on the purpose, logistics and goals for the session — can not only reduce the potential for failure but maximize results.


As noted, program registration was limited and due to an overwhelming response, the program has now reached maximum capacity.  This program will be recorded and available on our website within the next two weeks.  Thank you for your interest in NAM's CLE programming and please stay tuned for additional CLE programs offered through the NAM Academy.


NAM is an accredited provider of CLE credit in New York, approved for traditional live-classroom format, as well as webinars.
