The Judge As Mediator Seminar

Sponsored by the CMBA's Civility and Professionalism Task Force

This course satisfies the Supreme Court's biennial requirements for Professional Conduct.

Members of the Bar, you are cordially invited to attend a CLE on September 17 designed to improve and advance the delicate dance between lawyer and judge in a mediation setting.

The venue for this will not be in a judge's chamber, but at the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association, where lawyers and judges will sit side-by-side and view videotaped vignettes (starring the Bar's best actors and actresses, except perhaps for those from the Court of Nisi Prius) - peppered with participant participation and infused with insightful interchange intended to flesh out both best and worst practices.

"The focus of this CLE is squarely on the expectations that should occur in the courtroom between attorney and judge," said Judges Joan Synenberg and Michael Donnelly, co-chairs of the CMBA's Civility & Professionalism Task Force. "Instead of a lecture-focused CLE, this one is totally interactive, with both comment from the audience, as well as anonymous 'voting' (or 'response technology,' in today's parlance)."

"Let at least one of us be Frank - this will be entertaining and engaging. More important, this CLE will try to provide alternatives when lack of civility happens. Whether it starts with the bench or bar - what do you about it?" added Frank DeSantis and Alan M. Petrov, co-chairs of the Education Subcommittee producing this CLE.
