Hot Topics in Mediation and Judicial Settlement   


What are the disadvantages and advantages of facilitative versus evaluative mediation? How can mediators ensure confidentiality is working for, and not against, the principals of fairness in mediation?


Attendees at this day-long seminar presented by the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section will get the answers to these questions. They will also find out when mediation discussions are confidential and privileged and where protections end and liabilities begin for mediators and parties. Speakers will also discuss the role psychology plays in avoiding ethical mishaps and where to look for a mediator, based on subject matter, expertise and/or style.

Volunteer Attorneys Needed for Disaster Legal Services Program


From severe winter storms to heavy rains, flooding and fires, Nevada is not immune to national disasters. Since 2004, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has declared four major disasters in our state.


With this in mind, the Young Lawyers Section (YLS) has teamed up with Nevada Legal Services, FEMA and the ABA to seek volunteer attorneys willing to provide pro bono legal assistance to victims of natural disasters. As part of the Disaster Legal Services (DLS) program, volunteer attorneys provide all legal services to victims, free of charge.


Attorney skills and areas of expertise the program is most likely to need include: insurance claims, landlord-tenant and other housing problems, home repair contracts, consumer protection matters, mortgage foreclosures, replacement of wills and other important legal documents, drafting powers of attorney, estate administration, and preparation of guardianships and conservatorships.


Please note that fee-generating cases are not covered under the DLS program, and volunteer attorneys will not be reimbursed for telephone calls, mileage or any other case-related expenses.


Those interested in volunteering their time to helping Nevadans in need should forward their names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses and practice areas/legal interests to Scott Lachman at
