MTC trainers, Margaret Crowley and Melissa Mangiaracina, had such a great time presenting at the ABA's annual ADR conference that we've decided to offer our session live via zoom to those that were not able to join us in Las Vegas. This two-hour live online course explores the unique ways in which power differentials arise in the online mediation setting and offers tried and true tips for helping alleviate some of these power imbalances.
