Lunch & Learn Continuing Educational Series

The Dispute Resolution Center’s

Lunch & Learn Lunch Series....

Educates participants about a variety of topics related to help mediators and restorative justice facilitators continuously improve their skills, learn from their peers and discuss and prepare for challenging situations encountered in mediations.

Past participants have shared that the Lunch and Learn Lunch Series are: “good for experienced mediators,” “useful if you are transitioning from training to practicing mediation,” and “offer an opportunity for frank discussions about emotional challenges.”

This series is intended for trained mediators/facilitators, but is open to anyone interested in learning more.

An optional $25 certificate* fee provides CLE credits for mediators on the court roster. Contact Kevin Werner, for more information about CLE credits.
