Lunchtime Webinar – Mediating in a pandemic
Does the online response represent a new way for family law practitioners? COVID-19 changed many aspects of what we as family lawyers and practitioners do. We had to adapt. One example was how we changed how we mediate. Some of us scrambled to understand how to connect, where to place the camera and how to get more than one person in an online room. For others it represented an easier way and perhaps an earlier transition into the future of family law and alternative dispute resolution. In this webinar, Mediator, Arbitrator and Barrister Bruce Thiele discusses how his mediation practice adapted to COVID-19.
