MEDIATION:  Introduction & Beyond
November 28  4:00-6:00 PM
Charlottesville General District Court 
606 E Market St, Charlottesville, VA 22902
Adjacent to the Market Street Parking Garage
2 CME General or Family
$25 Check made payable to CABA
Join us for an information-packed presentation to the Charlottesville Albemarle Bar Association at their fourth quarter Continuing Legal Education series about mediation and why attorneys should embrace it as a tool for their practices.  
Originally developed for attorneys, this presentation is open to mediators as well.  Mediators will benefit by joining attorneys and learning when they decide to mediate and how they use mediation. Course material is meant to be interactive at the end of each topic so questions and comments from mediators will be welcomed.  

We have obtained approval for 2 hours CME.  CABA is charging their members $25 for admission and they are extending the same fee to mediators.  Please bring a check made payable to CABA for that amount.

Also, because space is limited, please email Jane Dittmar if you plan to attend so we can make sure there is a packet prepared for you.
