Post-Law Day #80: Mediation Reflections

Day #80 spent successfully completing a Resolution Institute mediator refresher course.

Wonderful to have an opportunity to attend and refresh skills – enjoyed testing the shift to a “post-law” point of view in practice mediations and found it easier for me, now, to “shelve” legal analysis of “the problem” so as to facilitate parties’ exploration of the issues and attempts to generate options.

In reflection, I also identified that I was less affected by the adversarial stance of the parties. In my pre-Post Law phase, I’d often be drawn to the side of the legal argument that I thought was more convincing. Not so much now. Interesting. Looking forward to seeing how this develops.
