UPDATE TO TMS SOCIETY SESSIONRE CHANGE TO MEDIATION CONFIDENTIALITY – IMPORTANT DISCUSSION!
Mediators differ on whether exceptions to mediation confidentiality are a problem. For more than 20 years California’s mediations have enjoyed absolute confidentiality and thus protection from disclosure in civil proceedings. The state is poised for a change as the California Law Revision Commission (CLRC) has issued a draft recommendation providing for an exception to confidentiality upon which the public should comment to the CLRC by September 1st. Keep in mind that 90% of CLRC recommended legislation is adopted and becomes law without change.
TMS Members have the unique opportunity to join a discussion introduced and led by Fred Hertz on the pros and cons of the draft recommendation. Although Ron Kelly and Rachel Ehrlich are unable to participate in the program, fortunately Fred Hertz will be there to lead a dynamic, robust discussion on this important issue. Please join us for this Society Session to discuss, ask questions, and exchange ideas before the official comment period ends!*****Deadline for submitting letters to the Commissionis September 1, 2017*****
