Posted on Jan 05, 2023 |CLE Events

New York, NY (January 5, 2023) – NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), one of the leading providers of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services, and the nonprofit learning organization Practising Law Institute (PLI), will jointly offer a series of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs focused on ADR starting in 2023.

Together, NAM and PLI will develop customized programs with leading specialists in arbitration and mediation, including neutrals from NAM's highly respected nationwide panel, to develop timely, informative One-Hour Briefings that will be presented by PLI free of charge. These programs will be eligible for CLE credit in all MCLE states. 

The first Briefing in the series, Resolving Coverage Disputes in Mediation, will feature an in-depth discussion on the unique issues attendant to confronting and addressing coverage disputes, with particular attention paid to the practical benefits of resolving these disputes via mediation. Presented by expert mediator Richard P. Byrne, Esq. of NAM, this hour-long discussion will be valuable to attorneys in private practice, insurance claims professionals, and in-house counsel. Scheduled to be presented live on Tuesday, February 21, 2023, the Briefing will be available to stream on-demand in the following weeks.
