ACR Nationally Approved 40-Hour Family Law Mediator Training
FALL Session: August 31 - September 4, 2015

Attorney: Approved Iowa 40, CLE   2.75 Ethics

Presenter: Christine L. Crilley, JD

I am pleased that you are interested in being trained as a mediator.  The purpose of this 40-hour program is to train mediators in compliance with Iowa law so as a mediator you can mediate in Iowa and in family law disputes in the state of Iowa.  For this program to be effective and enjoyable, the training will be casual but professional and will be held in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

You will receive comprehensive training that will form a foundation for your Mediation Practice or for a Collaborative Law Practice.  Although this training is not intended to be advanced skill training, some advanced skill development may be introduced.  This 40-hour mediation training will provide a thorough background in dispute resolution to enable you to develop your own style and area of mediation.

The training will help you to develop a basic plan to set up a practice/business in mediation or to use the knowledge gained to become more effective with other people that you encounter.

The training will be a seminar style of learning with active participation by each participant. Please feel free to ask questions as we proceed through the training. And, yes, we will do a lot of role playing so you get a chance to practice mediating. This is a 40-hour course and to complete your certificate, you must attend all 40 hours. I will incorporate breaks within the training and we will break for lunch daily.    

I hope that you will enjoy this learning experience as much as I will enjoy providing this training.

“May it please the Court?”

Are you excited
about saying those words for the very first time? Or perhaps you are eager to polish your Mock Trial skills.  Well, then Mock Trial Camp 2015 is for you.

If you are new to Mock Trial then the Beginners Session is for you.  We will start at the beginning. We will learn about the law, how to structure/write opening statements and closing arguments, discuss basic objections, direct and cross examinations, and the basics to analyzing a case. You will learn about Court room etiquette and then have the opportunity to practice what you have learned as you participate in a real court room drama.

Already a veteran of Mock Trial?  Then the Experienced Session is for you.  You will work to improve and expand the skills that you have already developed by practicing advance Mock Trial techniques.  On the final day of camp, you will put what you have learned to the test as you participate in a mock trial.

“In my 15 years of the practice of law, this has been the best seminar I have attended in terms of content and instruction.  I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in mediation.”

“Amazing seminar.  Very practical, hands on style.  Thank you so much for the opportunity to practice.  Very helpful to know you are available to us.  It is very refreshing to be taught by someone who loves and values this profession.”

“Your education guidance and constructive input during the role playing session was very valuable.  You are very enthusiastic and encouraging person and I am sure most of us left feeling empowered and inspired.”

I wanted to thank you for a wonderful week of mediation training.  I am looking forward to using my new skills in working with my existing clients and hopefully able to play an active role in settlement conference.”

“Thanks for all the hard work you put into making this such a wonderful, productive experience.  The Training totally opened my eyes to the benefit of properly prepared mediation.  And thanks so much for the templates and forms so we don’t have to re-invent the wheel.”

This was a very well organized and conducted program.  Coming out of the Training, I feel that I have the skills to initiate a Mediation Practice.

I absolutely loved this class.  It exceeded my expectations in every way. I will be a better lawyer because of what you have created with this class. I don't think I could have learned these skills as well from anyone else.  Your environment, style and feedback were outstanding.

The most valuable portions were the role plays and understanding differences of what lawyers/non-lawyers can say during mediation.

“This class solidified that mediation is a true and beautiful art form. You are a master of your skill. What an amazing process!”

“What a wonderful opportunity to experience how mediation can help people work out their own differences and the agreements they can reach. And now I have the knowledge to assist others in reaching their own agreements.”

“All of the role playing really helps understand the process and how mediation truly works.”

“Loved the energy of Chris; made you feel welcome to make mistakes and learn from them. Very helpful with comments to improve on your questions.”
