NEXT GEN Training: Mediation Strategy - Those Who Get it, Get it Done

Registration is closed

Our November Next Gen training webinar will be presented by Tommy Santel of Parkerson, Santel and Garner and titled Mediation Strategy:  Those Who Get it, Get it Done.

Mediation is not about convincing the other side that you are "right."  While one side of the case may be in a better position in litigation, or pre-litigation, it is important to remember that in order to settle a case at mediation, both sides still need to find common ground.  Attorney Tommy Santel will share tips and strategies on what he has learned as a litigator and Rule 31 mediator on the most effective techniques to get a case across the finish line at mediation.

This one hour Free CLE is part of TDLA 's Next Gen Series of webinars. Approved for one hour of TN General CLE. Registrants will receive Zoom link prior to the webinar. 


NEXT GEN Defense Lawyer Training is a FREE TDLA webinar series of 9 short virtual CLE programs running over a 12 month period, with each webinar addressing a different aspect of the defense of a civil case, especially designed for TDLA young lawyers. A TDLA member will educate on the topic and end with an open group discussion.
