2-hours MCLE credit (1 "Legal Ethics" credit).
Viewing Time: 120 minutes.
Description: In a complex case, lawyers and mediators often deal with highly charged litigants who may appear emotionally disturbed but are actually high-functioning personalities who under the care of a mental health professional can perform activities of daily living.
In this videotaped presentation, Steven Block explores the archetypes in a proceeding, the ethical and practical challenges in mediating a case with an emotionally disturbed litigant, and how to extract an agreement without overreaching, undue-influence, and the potential failure to discharge the duty of informed consent.
