LSBA ADR Section Encouraging School Outreach Participation for Mediation Week

The LSBA’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Section is encouraging Section members and all LSBA members to volunteer time and present mediation outreach programs at Louisiana schools. National Mediation Week is Oct. 11-17, but the presentations may be given through the end of October. The presentations focus on understanding different perspectives in a dispute, listening skills, and of being aware of cultural differences that may come into play. Because these are universal skills/concepts in the practice of law, any LSBA member may conduct the presentations.

Attorneys who would like to volunteer should contact prospective schools directly. Also, the attorneys volunteering are asked to contact Immediate Past Section Chair Paul W. Breaux to let him know the schools (and cities) being covered; email or call (225)235-7410.

Suggested classroom materials are included in the links below.
