Mediation for Lawyers is a must-read for lawyers who want to help their clients resolve their conflicts successfully in mediation. This practical guide provides lawyers with a structure to follow from the first consultation with a client to the conclusion of the mediation process. Explanations, advice, checklists, and sample clauses for drafting a settlement agreement make this book invaluable as a reference manual not only for the uninitiated and law students, but also for lawyers with some mediation experience who wish to improve their skills.
