WHO: Forrest (Woody) Mosten, internationally acclaimed mediator, trainer, collaborative attorney, author, and certified family law specialist.

This three-day course is an overview of cutting-edge developments, lawyering roles, and practice skills that are necessary to prepare law students and attorneys for a successful career serving individual clients.

Participants will have classroom discussion and simulation role playing of key lawyering tasks such as: conducting a client interview to obtain informed consent for options to litigation, negotiating a Collaborative Law Participation Agreement that disqualifies the negotiating lawyers from later representing their clients in litigation, and conducting a personal legal wellness checkup with a middle-income client.
