Join the Massachusetts Bar Association for a mock trial in which the process of mediation is the subject of the trial. A "prosecutor" will attack the flaws in mediation, and a "defense attorney" will present the benefits of mediation. Panelists will act out the roles of the judge, prosecutor, defense attorney, husband, wife and mediator in a family law matter. 

During the presentation, panelists will have a fishbowl of a mediation portraying the result of the parties’ decision to mediate as an alternative to continuing with a trial.

Panelists will argue the benefits and pitfalls of mediation in a fun and informative way.
