Prof Hiro Aragaki
Tuesday, July 16, 2019
Noon to 1:30pm
This event will qualify for 1 hour of MCLE Credit.
Since approximately the year 2000, countries around the world have been busy enacting and re-enacting mediation laws. What do these laws look like, and what do they suggest about the way mediation is developing internationally? Are there salient regional trends, commonalities, or differences? What generalizations can be made about the treatment of mediation confidentiality, mediator certification, and other key legal issues? In this talk, Professor Aragaki will touch on these questions in the course of reporting preliminary findings from his comparative study of approximately 70 national mediation statutes and executive decrees.
