Mediation Case Law Teaching Videos

Mediation Case Law Teaching Videos

 

Starting in 2006, as part of the annual Minnesota State Bar Association ADR Institute, Hamline Professor James Coben has been producing short videos illustrating mediation litigation.

Special thanks to Jodie Dulac and Justin Rooney for video production assistance and to the ADR Institute Players for their creativity and improvisation skills: Ellen Abbott, Mark McCrea, David Allgeyer, Marilyn McKnight, Hugh Bishop, Lara Nafziger, James Coben, Rebecca Picard, Ken Fox, Sukh Singh, Aimee Gourlay, Jenelle Soderquist, Joe Kenyon, Gary Weissman, Michael Landrum, Robert Williams, David Lauth, Eduardo Wolle, Bobbi McAdoo, Jeanne Zimmer

For reasons that will become obvious when you view the videos, please also provide your audience with the following disclaimer: Some of the video enactments you are about to see portray "less than optimal" mediator performance. Rest assured that you are not at risk by hiring any of the ADR Institute Players as neutrals (or lawyers), despite what you see on the tape.

The videos are fictional reenactments of the mediations underlying the published litigated cases. The "scripts" were developed solely by reading the written trial or appellate court decision - by no means a perfect window into what actually happened in a particular case.

Feel free to use these videos in your teaching and training. There is no charge for use; we ask only that you notify the Hamline Dispute Resolution Institute that you are using the videos and describe the context. Whenever the videos are shown, please attribute them in the following way: Produced by Professor James Coben and the Minnesota State Bar Association.
