Plenary Session:

The Mediator’s Dilemma:

Joint Session, or No Joint Session

(CME: General)

Speaker

George Knox  

Mediator/Facilitator/Peacemaker

George Knox served as a Visiting Faculty Member at the Florida International University College of Law between 2010 and December 2014, teaching courses in Negotiation and Mediation. He has been a member of the faculty at the University of Arkansas School of Law; lectured at the University of Miami School of Law, as well as its School of Business Administration; Nova University Law School, and Florida International University College of Urban and Public Affairs.

Mr. Knox currently maintains a private Mediation and Facilitation practice that features relationship-building negotiation techniques. The aim is to foster the development of a peaceful culture that facilitates legal problem solving between parties who have a common interest in resolving their differences and prolonging their relationships. These techniques are most effective in matters where disputes involve policy or ideological differences, or intense emotional dynamics, or where race, ethnicity or culture may be factors affecting resolution.
