Mediators, like other professionals, are required to meet annual continuing education obligations. C-DRUM has been busy this spring providing a variety of opportunities in Maryland and beyond to fulfill mediator training and education requirements.
For the fourth year in a row, Maryland Carey Law partnered with the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution to provide a Professional Skills Program in Dispute Resolution. The two and a half-day program featured six faculty members and over 65 attendees from as far away as Nigeria.
C-DRUM staff, Professor Deborah Eisenberg, and Managing Director Toby Treem Guerin taught courses on STAR: Strategic Approach to Mediation and Public Sector Mediation: Skills and Drills respectively. Two new courses, Advanced Family Mediation and Breaking Impasse with Science, provided experienced mediators the opportunity to enhance their skills.
Recently, Professor Eisenberg presented for the Montgomery County Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section and at the Maryland State Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution continued legal education program “Keeping Up with the Kredentials”.
Both Eisenberg and Guerin joined a panel of speakers for the joint Baltimore County/Baltimore City Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section’s lunchtime CLE event “Are You Confused About the Rule?” on April 21, 2016. A half-day training for the mediators in Talbot County, Maryland is planned for May 2016.
